Written by Kathy, a volunteer at LSC for 10 years:
Our role is to welcome everyone to LSC. To be friendly and caring, offering assistance to our sight or hearing impaired service users in many aspects of their everyday life and equipment aids to make life at home and work easier. Helping people who come to our office is very rewarding. We help people with their hearing aid questions, and assist the manager with administration tasks and other little jobs.
The office is very relaxed and is a very social place to spend time.
A fun aspect of the role is attending the monthly social group with other volunteers and service users and seasonal outings around the area.
