We Need You!


We are always looking for volunteers to help out our activity coordinators at events. From swimming to rock climbing, to ice skating to family days out, you name it, we probably do it.

We need your help to facilitate the smooth running of our activities, assisting our activity coordinators in the meeting and greeting of families on event days and ensuring our families get the appropriate help and support they need when they arrive at a venue. This can include tasks such as helping our children put their skates on when we take them ice skating, or if you are happy and feel competent to do so, then jump on the rink and teach them to skate, or perhaps you’re a strong swimmer and you can assist families on our trips to the swimming pool. Whatever your skill, if you have the time and desire to help us, we would love to hear from you!

All volunteers will receive training, undergo a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check and receive regular support and supervision. All volunteer costs will be reimbursed.

Interested? Email Judith O’Connell, Charity Coordinator by email: office@usefulvision.org.uk or by telephone: 0191 4472600 to apply or to receive further information.
