Volunteer roles

Be a ‘Helpline’ volunteer

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.

Be a ‘Talk & Support Service’ volunteer

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.

Be a peer support group volunteer

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.

Be a fundraising volunteer

We have many roles available within our fundraising team from ranging from collectors at local events to guide runners who join our marathon runners.

Be an occasional volunteer

We have many opportunities to volunteer with Retina UK on an occasional basis – for example our local Christmas Parade, Annual Conference and Information Days.

Be an office support volunteer

Our office is based in Buckingham and we have many administrative opportunities available throughout the year.
