Blind Sports & Recreation Victoria is currently seeking a volunteer to accompany a man who is blind, living in Corio on weekly walks in his local area.

You need to be accepting of people from different cultures with limited English language skills. Ideally you will speak Dari, but English-speakers are also encouraged to apply.

You will be part of the Walking with Willpower program, which aims to increase fitness, well-being and community involvement for adults who are blind or vision impaired. As a friendly, volunteer walking buddy you need to be more than 18 years of age, and be up-to-date with your Covid-19 vaccinations.  

Recruitment involves an interview, police and referee checks and completion of short training on how to best assist a person who has vision loss whilst out walking.

Try something new and make a positive difference to the quality of life of somebody in your local community.  Join our friendly team of volunteers.

To express your interest in this role, please contact our Program Manager, Miriam, via email miriam@blindsports.org.au
