Details of the Organisation:

We’re the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) and we’re here for everyone affected by sight loss. Whether you’re losing your sight or you’re blind or partially sighted, our practical and emotional support can help you face the future with confidence.

Whether you need advice on staying in work, using technology to help you do everyday tasks, or simply someone who can offer emotional support to help you come to terms with sight loss.

We’re RNIB and we’re here from the moment you’re diagnosed to help you get on with your life. From the day when you need us the most, until the day you’re living your life again.

With your support, we can reach more blind and partially sighted people and face the future with confidence together.

Details of The Volunteering Opportunity:

Would you like to help people with sight loss explore the options of getting online? Could you share your knowledge and enthusiasm to help people engage with technology? You will show people how to use a computer, tablet or smart phone to get online, deliver group training and demonstrations and visit people in their home to help them with basic online skills.

Time commitment is flexible and this role is available throughout the week including evenings and weekends.

Additional Benefits:

  • Travel expenses reimbursed
  • Hours volunteered will be recorded on your HEAR – which goes on your permanent university record
  • All hours contribute towards your Brunel Volunteers Award, which leads to an invitation to the End of Year Volunteers Dinner
