Full training and ongoing support is provided. An induction to the organisation, as well as role specific training is provided. Volunteers will have a key staff contact for support.
This role would be ideal for someone who likes meeting new people and getting out and about in their local community.

We are Guide Dogs and we’re here to help people with sight loss live the life they choose. Our ambition is a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support they need to live their lives to the full.

We don’t just provide life-changing guide dogs, we also provide advice, skills, emotional and practical support for people and families living with sight loss to help them live actively, independently and well.

What does the role involve?
Assisting your local fundraising group in organising, promoting and taking part in a variety of activities to raise money for Guide Dogs.

Main responsibilities-
• Attend group meetings
• Assist with street collections
• Help on stalls at local events
• Take Collection Boxes to local businesses
• Keeping track of what we sell on our stalls at events (including the cuddly toys!)
• Count donations

Becoming a Fundraising Volunteer is a great place to start if you’ve never volunteered before as you’ll receive full training from Guide Dogs and be supported by the other volunteers in your group. Beneficial to have good communication skills and be comfortable talking to new people.

We’re happy to have a chat with you about the role before applying to give you a bit more information and let you ask any questions that you might have! Please contact Heather.Valentine@guidedogs.org.uk for more information.
