Volunteering Opportunities

Is it your New Years resolution to volunteer for a local charity and give back to your community? Volunteering is a great way to increase confidence, happiness and attend social activities/outings.  Here at Dorset Blind Association, we are powered by over 400 loyal volunteers and we received a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2017, recognising the hard work and dedication of all of our volunteers. You could be a part of this fantastic group of people and give back to your community today. We have a number of volunteering opportunities available, to suit everyone’s needs:

Fundraising Opportunities:

Could you help us at a supermarket or street collection across Dorset? Just give two hours of your time to fund raise for DBA. Contact Gareth on gareth@dorsetblind.org.uk for more information

Could you help at one of Fundraising Events? Help be a marshal at our Lulworth Castle Motor Show in May, or our Bright for Sight Night Run in Weymouth during April. Contact Helena@dorsetblind.org.uk for more information about our upcoming events and volunteering opportunities.
