Vision Independence Volunteer (East London)
We aim to empower groups of blind and partially sighted 18-25 year olds to gain the emotional and practical skills, and confidence, they need to live their lives without limits. We are looking for a team of volunteers to support our East London groups, which are based in Stratford.
The groups will be facilitated by a member of staff, but volunteers will play active role. This role offers the opportunity to make a significant difference to the lives of individuals, and contribute to their personal growth. There will also be the opportunity to attend an accredited external leadership course funded through the project for a limited number of volunteers.
We expect that the majority of activities will take place at weekends
