Join us so others can join in!

Blind Sports & Recreation Victoria is seeking a friendly walking buddy to take a lady who is blind and uses a mobile walker, on slow walks in her local area of Thornbury.

This is an ongoing weekly one-hour commitment and you will need to be available on a weekday sometime between 10:30am and 4pm. Help improve this lady's fitness and reduce her social isolation.

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.

If you are interested in volunteering as a walking buddy, or you would like to find out what other volunteer opportunities are available, please contact Miriam on 03 9822 8876 or by email miriam@blindsports.org.au

 

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.Volunteers gain great benefit from assisting people who are blind or vision impaired, while enjoying many valued experiences.
