WhatsApp Communication Assistant

Want a volunteer role that’s quick, flexible, and can be done at home?

If you use WhatsApp already, are aged 16 or over, and have up to 30 minutes spare a month, then RNIB needs your help.

The role is simple. A WhatsApp message will be sent to you once a month. You then share it with people you know. We want the messages to reach people with different levels of vision, from different age groups and communities.

So, if you want to help people or want to give something back to charity without it costing you anything, then this is the role for you.

People who are living with one or more eye conditions are encouraged to apply.

RNIB are open to you sharing your personal experience to help us understand what is working and provide feedback on the content and responses from people.

To register your interest, please complete the online application at WhatsApp Communication Assistant | RNIB or contact our Volunteering Team who will be happy to help on 0303 123 9999 (option 4 followed by 2) or email them at volunteering@rnib.org.uk
