At Blind Veterans UK, we cannot thank all our volunteers enough for their incredible support, loyalty, and dedication to our veterans over the last two years.

Navigating through a global pandemic, brought with it challenges we never could have envisaged. However, with their support and patience we have had the ability to support blind veterans remotely through online social events, telephone befriending and providing essential shopping support.

We are now able to recruit volunteers for specific roles again. These roles are listed online.

The life-changing difference Blind Veterans UK volunteers make to our beneficiaries has been recognised with a national award.

The Quality in Befriending (QiB) award acknowledges the significant difference volunteer support provides to our blind veterans and highlights the quality of the volunteer service the charity offers. 

The QiB is the only award in the UK which is specifically tailored for befriending services and is valued by referrers, befrienders, commissioners, and funders. Developed by Befriending Networks in consultation with member organisations and other experts in the field of befriending, it also promotes good practice in the sector.

"It has been a pleasure getting to know each member and they have all been unbelievably welcoming and grateful for the help we provide. They constantly remind us how much our support means to them, which makes it all worthwhile. The opportunity to brighten up someone’s day by ensuring they have the support they need makes me proud to volunteer for Blind Veterans. It really is a fantastic charity and joining is one of the best things I’ve ever done!"
