SummaryVolunteers currently required for one to one telephone support and then post Covid-19 to continue the support with face to face befriending service
Detailed description

We are always looking for Volunteer Visitors for our befriending service to help us support visually impaired people throughout Somerset.

We have found that during the Covid-19 crisis many of our members have found life even more difficult than usual, and we have continued to keep in contact by phone offering much needed help, support and company to reduce isolation and loneliness at this most challenging time. Post Covid-19 to continue the support as a volunteer visitor for our befriending service.

About Somerset Sight
We know that life doesn't stop just because your sight has been affected. Our aim is to provide services, training and leisure activities that will help maintain independence and improve the quality of life of anyone who is affected by sight loss Working In Partnership. We have always valued our links with other organisations and have a good working relationship with Somerset County Council who contribute towards the cost of running our Visiting service and other services. We have good links with other sight loss organisations including RNIB, Action for Blind People and Guide Dogs for the Blind. As an independent local charity we are members of Visionary - linking local sight loss charities.
We started in 2019 so now over 100 years old. In 2019 we were very proud to receive the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.
