Volunteering Consultant

Volunteering Consultant - Janet Harper

"Never has volunteering been higher on the agenda nationally, its become very competitive, lots of charities and voluntary organisations fighting for the same volunteers. Its my job to ensure that when someone thinks about volunteering in Greater Manchester and Lancashire they come to us!

My role is to promote, develop and support the use of Guide Dogs volunteers in Greater Manchester, Lancashire and the Isle of Man in order that the Manchester MT meet all our targets and objectives in mobility services, fundraising, marketing and communications.

I make sure that we have the right volunteers in the right roles to ensure that we get more blind and partially sighted people in Greater Manchester and Lancashire mobile. Roles available to volunteers are varied, from Puppy walkers, to My Guides, boarders, to fundraisers, admin support, speakers and drivers, the opportunities are endless."
