Would you like to make a real practical difference to someone living with sight loss? Would you like to be instrumental in helping someone to participate more fully in their local community and work towards greater independence?
Guide Dogs are currently seeking volunteers to do just that as part of their ground breaking My Guide scheme. My Guide is a service provided by Guide Dogs to support people who are living with sight loss to get out and about, to do the things they want to do. The role involves providing sighted guide assistance in the Salisbury area.
We currently have service users waiting and they would really like to build up confidence in getting out and about with the overall aim of being able to go out independently.
This exciting and fulfilling volunteering opportunity would suit someone who likes to get out and about, lives in Salisbury or nearby and could spare two to three hours a week. Full My Guide training and ongoing support and supervision are provided. Volunteers must be 18+ and would require a DBS check.
To find out more about how you could help towards a person living with sight loss getting more out life, contact Hazel Dyson, Volunteering Consultant on 0118 983 8892 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A Child Contact Centre is a safe, friendly and neutral place where children of separated families can spend time with one or both parents and sometimes other family members. They are child-centred environments that provide toys, games and facilities that reflect the diverse needs of children affected by family breakdown.
A volunteer at a Child Contact Centre is primarily responsible for facilitating meaningful contact between a child or children and a non-resident parent.
Volunteers in Child Contact Centres need to be impartial, caring, tolerant, sensitive, flexible, discreet and reliable.
Required only 1st or 3rd Saturday a month from 10:15am - 13:30pm.
Please contact the Co-ordinator - Amber Skyring:

Headway Salisbury and South Wiltshire, a local charity supporting individuals who have Acquired Brain Injuries (ABI) (such as from a stroke, fall, road traffic accident or illness) and their families is recruiting volunteers.
The volunteers are needed to assist with their Monday and Thursday Activities Group, which runs from 9.30am to 1.30pm at Fisherton House, Wilton Road, Salisbury.
The groups allow individuals with an ABI to meet together and take part in group activities aimed at allowing members to improve areas such as memory, planning skills and social communication skills. Brain Injury can be sudden and devastating and it can affect an individual physically, cognitively and emotionally but with the right help at the right time there can be life after brain injury.
Volunteers will be supported by the Activities Co-ordinator and Development Officer to work with individuals within the group setting. These are varied and fulfilling roles. Please contact Sarah Allen on 07725 827869 or by e mailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
