Blind Veterans UK: Home Visitor Slough
We are looking for a friendly volunteer to visit one of our younger veterans in Slough. Having joined the Royal Navy and trained as an Air Engineering Mechanic, he spent most of his service life on board HMS Ark Royal. He then returned to the UK to work with computers, but is currently on long term sick leave. He is a very enthusiastic reader and is currently studying for a classics degree with the Open University. He loves talking about sport, history and the military. He spends a lot of time alone at home in the week whilst his wife works, so would benefit hugely from a patient volunteer who could provide some company and get him out and about in the local areaYour positivity, friendliness and communication can make the world of difference to our veteran's day to day life, something that can often feel very rewarding and worthwhile to our volunteers. We will give you full training and will cover expenses, and you will be part of our UK-wide volunteering community.
