Somerset Sight needs volunteers

Somerset Sight is a local charity that has been supporting sight impaired people across Somerset for over a hundred years and in 2019 proudly won the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.

One of Somerset Sight's services is the Volunteer Visiting Service whereby volunteers are matched locally with a sight impaired person for regular visits for company and support and to alleviate their loneliness and isolation.

Volunteers help with a variety of tasks such as reading, correspondence, or making appointments, going out for a drive or just a cup of tea and a chat. Many volunteers get great satisfaction and enjoyment from their voluntary work, many friendships are formed and the people they support very much look forward to their visits, some saying that it is the highlight of their week.

Now that we have come out of lockdown, there are many lonely people on Somerset Sight's books who would welcome a volunteer visitor, but unfortunately there are not enough volunteers to match everyone.

And of course you can help

There is no time limit for this on going service and if you feel you could volunteer to offer your company and time to a sight impaired person please contact Somerset Sight direct – details on the attached image.
