Volunteers are involved in a wide range of activities across the organisation and volunteering can take many different forms. For some volunteering is a one off activity, others may choose to make a long-term commitment to the charity.
We strive to ensure all those who volunteers with us have a positive and fulfilling experience.
The Retina UK Helpline Services are for people with inherited sight loss, their relatives and anyone who wants to know more about these conditions. All the volunteers either live with, or have a close family member with, inherited sight loss.
You would be providing information about benefits, employment, education, providing emotional support or signposting to a relevant organisation.
Our Talk & Support Service
The Retina UK Talk & Support Service offers friendly phone calls from trained volunteers who are willing to share their experiences and lend a listening ear.
This service offers a social link on a more personal and longer term basis than the Retina UK Helpline.
Our Local Peer Support Groups
The Retina UK Peer Support Groups are local groups providing regular meetings and face-to-face contact for people with inherited sight loss, their relatives and anyone who wants to know more about these conditions.
We have many roles available within our fundraising team from ranging from collectors at local events to guide runners who join our marathon runners.
We have many opportunities to volunteer with Retina UK on an occasional basis – for example our Annual Conference.
Be an office support volunteer
Our office is based in Buckingham and we have many administrative opportunities available throughout the year.
