Blind Veterans UK helps vision-impaired ex-Servicemen and women to rebuild their lives after sight loss. We provide rehabilitation, training, practical advice, and emotional support to veterans regardless of how or when they lost their sight.
We’re here to help blind veterans regain their independence and live the life they choose.
Volunteer drivers are essential in helping our veterans get from A to B.
Whether it's driving them to appointments, or getting them to one of our lunch clubs, our transport team enable our veterans to do the things they need to do.
This role is ideal for someone who likes driving and getting out and about and can make our veterans feel at ease along the journey. It’s simple: arrange pick up, let the veteran know the journey details, take them to the destination, and help them enter and exit the vehicle.
Although you will be working in the community independently, your manager is only a phone call away and there is a network of other volunteers for you to link in with too.
Volunteers must be over the age of 18 years and understand the importance of confidentiality and relationship boundaries.
The role can be flexible around your other commitments, but we ask that you are reliable and punctual for our veterans.
You will be fully trained and supported so you feel comfortable and confident in your volunteering.
