Volunteer

Support our Armed Forces veterans in your local community. 

Volunteers are a vital part of our work to support military veterans coping with life after sight loss.

As a volunteer, you will meet inspiring people, gain valuable experiences, and help us to change the lives of those who have served their country.

By giving a little of your time, and by sharing your skills, you will be part of one of Scotland’s leading veterans’ charities.  If you would like to get involved, find out more about the range of opportunities available in our current vacancies.

Meet our Volunteers

Find out from our inspiring volunteers why they do what they do:

Meet Tom, volunteer woodwork instructor at the Hawkhead Centre in Paisley.   

Tom began volunteering at the Hawkhead Centre shortly after it opened. He heard that the centre was looking for someone to share their knowledge of woodwork, and thought that this would be the right opportunity for him. 

Tom says:

'I enjoy the fellowship with the veterans. Just listening to their stories and the experiences they’ve had is just fantastic. It makes me count my blessings that I’ve got my full sight when you see how people are coping with their limited and different variations in their sight. It’s really a privilege to be here, it’s amazing and I feel part of something.' 

Training and Support for volunteers

Your time and skills are valuable, and in return Scottish War Blinded will offer relevant training and travel expenses and enable you to get the most out of your volunteering.
