Make a difference today!
Here at Deafblind UK our goal is to assist people with combined sight and hearing loss to live the lives they want. Our members are some of the most isolated and lonely people in society and we want to do all we can to change this. Our team of amazing volunteers make our goal possible!
We run over 35 social groups across the UK, giving our members the opportunity to come together and take part in organised activities and events. These groups, which meet once a month, give our members the chance to remain a part of a society and greatly benefit the quality of their lives.
We are looking for patient, friendly volunteers to help us run our groups. This could be anything from administrational tasks such as keeping record of attendees, organising day trips and logging information and preparing material to help us reach out to as many local people as possible.

Willing to learn more about Deafblindness and guiding/communication techniques (full training is provided)
