Volunteering

My Guide volunteer appeal

Our My Guide service is going from strength to strength and this is thanks to our volunteers. In 2014 we had over 70 My Guide interactions that ranged from day to day activities like going to local community groups or the shops to more unique and specialised Guiding opportunities. These included guide running, guide yoga and guide archery.

My GuideWe’re in need of volunteers to continue our My Guide service across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire, however, we have a real need for volunteers in Woksop, Retford, Doncaster and Rotherham.

If you live in or around these areas and have a couple of hours spare a week to help someone get out and about more we’d love to hear from you.

A My Guide Partnership matches a person who is blind or partially sighted with a trained volunteer. The volunteer guides the person who is blind or partially sighted so that they can reach their mobility goals - these could be things like being able to go to the gym, joining a local coffee group or just walking in the local park.

For more information on My Guide please visit www.guidedogs.org.uk/myguide alternatively contact the Mobility Team on 0345 1430221 or nottingham@guidedogs.org.uk

Calls to our Mobility teams will cost 3 pence per minute plus your telephone company’s access charge.


Volunteer Speakers needed

Do you have a Guide Dogs story that you would like to share? Maybe you're a volunteer, or a guide dog owner or even a family member who has witnessed the benefits of the charity.

As a volunteer speaker you can help raise awareness, support and enthusiasm for our work by giving talks and presentations about Guide Dogs.

This is a flexible role and will take place in the community at local groups, this may include community groups, schools or businesses.

We particularly need volunteer speakers in the Derbyshire area.
