Open Sight is a dynamic charity supporting people within Hampshire who have sight loss. It aims to enable people with sight loss to achieve social inclusion, promote integration, personal development and independence.
Open Sight is seeking volunteers to join us as Social Club Drivers to transport visually impaired members from their homes to and from the Club venue. Venue, routes, dates, times and specific pick-up points are pre-arranged and agreed with Club Organisers and individuals. There may also be occasions when transportation of an accompanying guide dog is necessary.
For this role you will need to inform your motor insurers that you are a Volunteer Driver. Social Club Drivers will also be required to attend 'Safe Sighted Guiding' training.
Regular contact with you to offer ongoing support, including training where appropriate, to enrich and develop your volunteering experience.
