SIGHT SUPPORT WORTHING NEEDS VOLUNTEERS

  • Accompany Members on day trips and outings

Volunteers should:

  • Hold a clean driving license (if applicable)
  • Be able bodied and able to help others, whilst being able to adequately look after themselves
  • Pro-active, with organisational and social skills

Volunteers will:

  • Be subject to an advanced check against the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CBR)

Are you a professional who can help?

The Charity would also like to reach out to professionals who would be willing to dedicate some of their expertise in helping to raise the profile of the Charity throughout Worthing. Marketeers, fund raisers etc.

Did you know the benefits of volunteering can be enormous to you, your family, and your community. Volunteering can help you to reduce stress, find friends, reach out to the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career. Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. Volunteering is rewarding and can give you a focus or purpose if you are at a time in your life when you need a bit ‘more’ in your life and have time to help others.

Just remember, here at Sight Support Worthing the Board of Trustees believes that ‘no Volunteer’ should be out of pocket… all your expenses will be paid, and as a thank you, you will be invited to a Lunch or Tea each year.
