Somerset Sight – Volunteer Visiting Service

Somerset Sight is a local charity that has been supporting sight impaired people across Somerset for over a hundred years and in 2019 proudly won the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.

One of our services is the Volunteer Visiting Service whereby volunteers are matched locally with a sight impaired person for regular visits for company and support and to alleviate their loneliness and isolation.

Volunteers help with a variety of tasks such as:

Reading 📚📖📔📓

Catching up on correspondence 📧📨📮☎️

Making appointments ⏰🗓📋📅

Going out for a drive 🚗🏞👭👫👬

Enjoying a cup of tea and a chat. 🫖☕️🍪🍰

The people they support very much look forward to their visits, some telling us that it is the highlight of their week.
