We’re the Royal National Institute of Blind People. Let's create a world where there are no barriers for blind and partially sighted people.
We are working throughout Yorkshire and the Humber to equip blind and partially sighted people to change things for themselves, mobilise the sight loss community and change society.
You can support our work through volunteering as a fundraiser, campaigner or community volunteer. All roles are flexible and don't require you to come in to the office, some require a weekly commitment and some are occasional. We especially welcome volunteers with sight loss.
We are looking for individuals or small groups to help us with fundraising and awreness raising. We work across a large region so are looking for people who create and run small events in their local area, with our full support.
