Volunteer for Royal Blind

Please note that due to coronavirus we are suspending all active volunteer recruitment until further notice.

You can still browse our opportunities. If you choose to submit an application, we will keep it on file and contact you as soon as we are able to resume recruitment.

If you prefer you can use this short form to give us your contact details, and we will get in touch with you when recruitment begins again.

Support blind and partially sighted children and adults

Our incredible team of volunteers are at the heart of what we do, providing essential support and bringing with them skills, knowledge and experience that really help to make a difference.

There are many ways you can help us, from befriending and having a friendly chat over a cup of tea with our care home residents, or assisting our teachers and playworkers, to championing and supporting our campaigns to fight isolation and loneliness on behalf of people with sight loss.
