We run several groups that encourage people with specific eye conditions and/or hearing conditions to meet on a regular basis to share experiences and access information specific to their circumstances. 

Volunteers help to facilitate the groups and support clients at the centre or on trips out.

We ask that you are friendly and reliable with a positive approach. Being flexible and willing to get involved in lots of different tasks is helpful. 

Time Involved:

Various dates and times, usually office hours Monday to Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm.

Where the role is based:

At SRSB’s Mappin Street Centre in Sheffield or RSS's Ship Hill Centre in Rotherham. 

You can read what our volunteers get out of different roles on our Volunteer Testimonials page.

PLEASE NOTE: We are not currently accepting applications due to the COVID-19 situation, as our centres are closed. When restrictions are lifted we would be very pleased to hear from you.

In the meantime, if you would like us to contact you when our centres reopen, you can email us here: and we will keep your name on record.
