Organisation details

Description

A free voluntary organisation that offers sight impaired people living within the Milton Keynes area help with reading and writing in their own home. This could include help with post and filing, reading documents and filling in forms or reading newspapers and magazine articles.

They also offer a 'Shop and See' service where a volunteer will visit your home, help you with your shopping list and then take you shopping. If needed, the volunteer will also help unpack purchases.

In addition, a facilitation service is provided where a volunteer can collect you and take you to an educational or cultural activity such as the theatre, library, seminar or art galleries.

All our volunteers are fully trained and checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service and confidentiality is respected at all times. We do our best to 'match' our service user to their volunteer with similar interests so that, hopefully, it will be a happy and long lasting placement.

Services offered:

  • Volunteering
  • Art
  • Social functions
  • Trips and outings
  • Home visiting
  • Shopping assistance
  • Audio transcription
