Does your eyesight make it difficult to deal with the post?

Are there odd jobs (sewing on a button perhaps, or keeping your CD collection in order) that you would appreciate help with?

Would you like a bit of company – someone to pop in for a chat?

Would it be easier to get out – perhaps to the local shops or for a stroll in the park – if someone came with you?

If the answer is ‘yes’, OAB’s Volunteer Home Visiting Scheme might help.

Key facts:

  • The scheme runs mainly in Oxford, Abingdon and Kidlington.
  • Volunteers usually visit once a week for about an hour.
  • We will find a day and time for the visits that suit both you and the volunteer.
  • It does not cost anything to take part.
  • All volunteers are trained by OAB.  We take up references and each person is checked by the Criminal Records Bureau.
  • Our Volunteer Coordinator will introduce you to your volunteer and keep in touch with regular phone calls.

Please email our Volunteering Coordinator volunteers@oxeyes.org.uk or telephone us for more information on 01865 725595.  The first step is a visit from  our Volunteering Coordinator – an opportunity to find out more about the scheme, ask any questions, and decide if you would like to take part.
