    Become a volunteer

    Each year thousands of volunteers give their time, knowledge and skills to support our work with New Zealanders who are blind or have low vision. They are often the face of the Blind Foundation for our members and clients. While we may not pay for this work, our volunteers say the pride and self satisfaction that comes with volunteering is invaluable.

    We're always looking for new volunteers. If you are interested, call us on 0800 24 33 33 and ask for your local Volunteer Services Coordinator, or email volunteer@blindfoundation.org.nz
