Do you enjoy walking and supporting people? Do you enjoy the outdoors? Would you like to learn how to guide a blind person?
Blind Sports & Recreation Victoria is looking for a friendly walking buddy to accompany a blind lady living in North Sunshine on weekly walks in her local area. This will be a one to two hour time commitment each week on an ongoing basis.
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, 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.
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.
