Could you support a lady in her 70s who has sight loss and is feeling isolated? 💙
We are looking for a volunteer to meet up with this lady for a walk and a coffee. She would also like some help with small shopping tasks, for example for gifts and clothes. She no longer has a guide dog and does not have much support to get out so you could really make a difference to her life.

You will be matched for 3 to 12+ months, meeting up around once a week.
