Royal Society for Blind Children (RSBC)
We create a better life for blind children, by helping every child and young person we work with to find and fulfil their own unique potential. We are there for them from the moment they are told they have lost their sight, guiding them and their families on their journey through sight loss. We provide them with a combination of support, learning and development opportunities to help them develop…

Reach out to your local communities, get your friends, families or fellow students involved, and support our mission of every blind and visually impaired child has access to the opportunities and experiences they want and deserve, so they can live a life without limits.

Be a champion - promote RSBC’s work through schools, local clubs, community groups or workplaces. You could give (online) talks in your local community, share RSBC news with people you know or recruit more volunteers and supporters.

Be a fundraiser – raise vital funds to support our work through your own online or in-person fundraising campaign or challenge. You could organise a coffee morning, bake-off competition or an online sale of hand-made crafts, complete a personal challenge to raise funds or just recycle items you have lying around.

Being a Community Volunteer is a very flexible opportunity and can be done either entirely online (emails, zoom, social media platforms etc.) or in-person in your local community (government rules permitting).

Time commitment

Community volunteering is a flexible volunteer opportunity. You can dedicate as much time to it as you want. This can be a few times a week or a month. The time commitment depends on what activities you wish to do. There are no fixed dates, or times to volunteer.
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
Relevant training will be provided through online RSBC induction. For any potential face-to-face activity, agreed by volunteer, there will be a separate risk assessment. All volunteers will be told to follow governmental safety advice to act according to it.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
