Volunteering vacancies

Our volunteers are important in helping us to carry out our life-changing work. Your skills, experience and enthusiasm are a huge part of everything we do.

Volunteering with Vista can benefit you too - developing skills, gaining confidence, demonstrating your commitment, building your experience, meeting new people and knowing that you are making a difference to local people with sight loss.

There are many ways you can be involved - in our social groups, with our charity shops, fundraising events, and more.

Take a look at the opportunities currently available, and if you’re interested please get in touch with our Volunteer Development Manager, or complete an application form.
