This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity if you have 2-3 hours a week spare to help support someone in our local community who has sight loss. In the role you will be trained in how to safely guide someone with sight loss and discuss the emotional and physical barriers they may come across to give you a greater understanding of the support they need. You would be matched with one person local to you and you will help them get out their home and do a particular activity they are unable to do on their own.

The team at Hawkhead are enthusiastic and motivated and aim to provide a quality service to the members of Scottish War Blinded. The Centre provides activities and equipment for veterans with a vision impairment helping to tackle social isolation and promote independence.

At present we have a website, just recently constructed but needs to be optimised. We have an independent Twitter account and a Facebook page but the Facebook account is connected to the manager's personal Facebook page. We, therefore, need to develop an independent Facebook page for the charity. We believe it would also be advantageous to the charity to have an Instagram page.
We need a volunteer, or volunteers, to create a new Facebook page and an Instagram page. To moderate, promote and develop the charity on social media creating a profile that will hopefully assist us in promoting our work and increase our online fundraising.
We also need that person, or persons, to optimise our website profile on the Internet to drive more views to our website. This will hopefully lead to more people becoming members of the charity and making donations to the charity via our website and social media pages.
