Volunteer for us

“Volunteering for the Dorset Blind Association has made me appreciate my own good health. I have a lot of admiration and respect for the visually impaired and the way that they cope.” — Bill

With over 400 volunteers, we can honestly say that we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without you!

We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities available, there is something to suit everyone, wherever you live, whatever your age and however much time you have.
