Could you be one of our fabulous befrienders?

Posted: Thursday 5 October 2023 | Louise Railton

Do you like chatting or getting out and about and want to make a difference to people living with sight loss? If so we are looking for volunteer befrienders to either telephone clients weekly, visit them at home or help them take part in leisure activities.

Both clients and volunteers greatly benefit from our befriending services, one client saying ‘my volunteer has cut the loneliness out of my life’.

You will need to be a good listener, non-judgemental and have an understanding of how to deal with confidential information. All volunteers need to be over 18, undergo a DBS check and attend 2 training sessions. Our next training courses are on the 9th and 23rd November so please get in touch with Catherine to find out more.

Please contact Catherine Bamford on or telephone 01904 731122.
