The Middlesex Association for the Blind (MAB) are looking for volunteers to help them continue their vital services.
MAB provides support for people with a visual impairment to help them to lead full, active and independent lives.
The main activities of MAB consist of a home visiting service, hospital information desk (MidSight), computer training, employment service and resource centres.
They have opportunities for people to get involved in all different aspects of the charity, from home visiting, to helping with fundraising and other social events.
In just an hour or two each week volunteers could provide invaluable support to a blind or partially sighted person. This will help them lead an independent life.
Volunteers will be required to visit the person with sight loss in their home, befriending and relieving their isolation. They may be required to assist them with reading, writing, shopping and other everyday tasks.
One volunteer shared some kind words about their involvement with the charity: “I thought that by signing up for MAB, I would be the one giving to people in need. What has surprised me most of all about this role, is that I find the clients give so much to me as well. I have found this work more meaningful for me on a personal level, than I ever could have imagined.”
