How do I become a Volunteer with Sight Service?

Once you contact us we will send you a volunteer application form and we can arrange an informal meeting with a member of staff. If you prefer, you can complete the application form at this meeting. We aim to match your skills and interests to the opportunities we have available.

We will ask you to provide us with contact details for two referees. You will also need to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS) and we can help with this.
