Volunteering at a social club allows you to have a vital role in improving lives in your local community.
Most club meetings offer entertainment and occasional outings; however, for many of the people who attend clubs, the real attraction is just the opportunity to get out of the house, sit and talk with others, share a joke and a coffee and feel safe in the knowledge that they are among friends.
There are over 25 Dorset Blind Association social clubs so you’re sure to find one that suits you. How involved you choose to get is up to you and the others in your club; you may be content to come along and have a chat with some of our visually impaired members, or you may prefer helping to serve refreshments. You can also get involved with organising things such as drivers, entertainment, membership or fundraising.
How you can help:
- Helping people arrive and settle in
- Making teas and coffees (or even cakes if you are an aspiring baker!)
- Arranging speakers, entertainment or trips
- Having a chat!
“I feel elated after the social club from seeing everyone and it stops me feeling sorry for myself” – Ruby
