Swimming Buddy for Blind Lady in BroadmeadowsBlind Sports Victoria Inc.
Do you enjoy swimming? Do you enjoy supporting people? Would you like to learn how to guide a blind person?
Blind Sports & Recreation Victoria is looking for a friendly swimming buddy to accompany a blind lady living in Broadmeadows on weekly swims at her local pool - the Broadmeadows Leisure Centre. This will be a two hour time commitment each week or fortnight on an ongoing basis. You must be female to apply due to change-room requirements.
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 swimming buddy, you need to be more than 18 years of age, with a positive attitude towards people with disabilities.
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 and swimming.
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.
