Become a My Guide volunteer

Do you have a couple of hours spare each week to help someone with sight loss to get out and about?

To become a My Guide volunteer you’ll need to complete the following:

  • Enhanced DBS, Disclosure Scotland or Access NI check
  • My Guide Level one – sighted guide training
  • My Guide Level two – volunteer training
  • Safeguarding training

My Guide is a wonderful opportunity to gain experience supporting people who are blind or partially sighted. For an insight into the role you can watch some of the stories on our You Tube page.

Please contact us on 0345 143 0229 to find out more about volunteering opportunities, or email and let us know where you live, so we can put you in touch with your local team.
