Summary

You will provide social, emotional, and practical support to vision impaired young people and their families during events and activities.

Detailed description

In this role you will support vision impaired young people and their families during CYPF events, to enable them to enjoy the same activities as fully sighted children by promoting confidence and independence.

CYPF volunteers engage in a variety of activities, including running playgroups, zoo and museum trips, and more.

While volunteering you will be required to wear your photo identity badge during all assignments and wear a supplied CYPF t-shirt and/or hooded sweatshirt during events.

Due to the nature of the role we also require you to undertake extra safeguarding training, which will be provided as part of your induction.


Prior experience in working with children and young people is preferred but not essential. Volunteers should be empathic and understanding, demonstrate effective communication skills, and enjoy meeting new people whilst encouraging clients to maintain their independence.
