BRITISH WIRELESS FOR THE BLIND FUND

www.blind.org.uk

British Wireless for the Blind provides specially adapted audio equipment to people who are registered blind or partially sighted, resident in the UK, over the age of 8 and currently on a means tested benefit. Our sets provide so much more than just a radio - they provide companionship, entertainment, information and news. Things that sighted people take so much for granted. We require volunteers to help raise funds, to assist with our administration work and generally to help us raise the charity profile in the public sector. Your time is very valuable to us. We may be able to accept a volunteer with an offending background depending on the role offered.
