Wiltshire Blind Association is seeking volunteers to join the small team running the Sight Loss Help Desk at the Eye Clinic in the Great Western Hospital, Swindon. Members of the team help patients in the Clinic by:
- Listening sympathetically to their concerns about sight loss
- Informing them about organisations that can help meet their needs such as Wilts Blind Association, RNIB or Social Services
- Giving them practical information about services and equipment available to help them live independently
Some experience of visual impairment would be helpful, but training will be provided. The team is friendly and has excellent relations with the staff of the Eye Clinic and Wilts Blind Association.
Volunteers need to commit one or more half days per week to the Help Desk.
Contact the association at St Lucy`s, 1 Commercial Road, Devizes, Wiltshire SN10 1EH.
