Want a volunteer role that’s quick, flexible, and can be done at home?

If you use WhatsApp already, are aged 16 or over, and have up to 30 minutes spare a month, then RNIB needs your help.

The role is simple.  A WhatsApp message will be sent to you once a month.  You then share it with people you know.  We want the messages to reach people with different levels of vision, from different age groups and communities.

So, if you want to help people or want to give something back to charity without it costing you anything, then this is the role for you.

People who are living with one or more eye conditions are encouraged to apply.

RNIB wants to test the use of WhatsApp to be able to reach blind and partially sighted people who have previously never accessed our services.

You agree to us sending you WhatsApp messages from RNIB every month with details of activities and events available.  By signing up to this role, you agree to then share the information with people you know either personally or professionally.  The key is reaching more people with sight loss, so they are aware of what is available.

Our aim is to reach people with different levels of vision and a variety of age groups and communities across the UK.

Contact with RNIB’s customers is not part of this role.

The role ends June 30th 2024
