OPP OF THE DAY: Community Volunteer – Royal Society for Blind Children

Our amazing Community Volunteers play a key role in championing RSBC’s work and raising vital funds to help blind children live a life without limits. We are looking to recruit more dedicated individuals to join Team RSBC and volunteer in their local community.

There are 2 ways to volunteer as a community volunteer:

  • Be a champion – promote RSBC’s work through schools, local clubs, community groups or workplaces. You could give (online) talks in your local community, share RSBC news with people you know or recruit more volunteers and supporters.
  • Be a fundraiser – raise vital funds to support our work through your own online or in-person fundraising campaign or challenge. You could organise a coffee morning, bake-off competition or an online sale of hand-made crafts, or complete a personal challenge to raise funds.

Community Volunteer role could be either entirely online (emails, zoom, social media platforms etc.) or you could go out in the community and talk to people face-to-face (government rules permitting). You can involve your family, friends, neighbours, work or university colleagues or people you don’t know yet – reach out in your local community and get them involved as well.

This is a very flexible role – there are no specific days or times to volunteer. As the role is carried out from home or/and in your community, you can choose when to volunteer yourself.

There is no specific duration of the role. The flexibility of the role allows you to spend as much time volunteering as you can – either this being a day or 6 months. It really is up to each individual volunteer.
