Somerset Sight – Volunteer Visiting Service
Somerset Sight is a long established charity supporting people with sight loss. Our visiting service provides fully trained and checked volunteers who visit sight impaired people on a regular basis to provide company and support.
The Volunteer Visiting Service has existed since the 1990’s, supporting people with day to day tasks, trips out and helping them to maintain an active lifestyle.
Volunteer Visitors are recruited and matched to an individual by Somerset Sight. The Co-ordinator for the service visits a person firstly to discuss the support with them. Once set up visits are on a regular basis, usually fortnightly. All our volunteers are fully trained and police checked.
Those who receive the service say what a difference it makes to their lives.
