Volunteers required

Vision Support is always looking for more volunteers and the Vision Support Centre is a great place to come and help. We have so much fun in our classes and we need lots of help to keep them going. Great friendships are made here, so we are sure you will enjoy coming as much as we will enjoy having you here!

IT Gurus

Help required for our eagerly awaiting members who are interested in learning how to use, tablets, iPhones, Smart phones and Ipads. One hour a week  tutorials for 5 weeks per member.

Website Help!

We manage ok I suppose, however, we would love to have a more up to date, dynamic website which incorporates lots of lovely accessibility features. Although we have the will, we lack the knowledge. Can you help?

Tea and coffee rotators

Help required to refresh our crafters and natterers with tea and coffee on a Tuesday morning, term time only. This position is on a rota basis, once or twice a month, 10am until 11.30am. Also help required for Friday afternoon sessions, enjoy the entertainments with us and help prepare and serve tea afterwards (if you make cakes, you are definitely invited! Non cake bakers also welcome!).

Crafters/helpers

Join one of our classes as an enabler, assisting members where necessary with their craftwork. Share your ideas and inspire others to create new things. We make some amazing pieces of work here at Vision Support, fabulous sculptures out of clay, rattan baskets and chairs, handmade cards, recycled crafts, but we are always looking for more ideas, so come along and get creative.

Walking Guides

Join our walking group on the second Saturday of each month. To enable our visually impaired members to enjoy the great Yorkshire countryside we need 1:1 guides to assist them on the walks. The walks average out at about 6 miles and are based all over the Harrogate District. The group enjoy an occasional stop at a local drinking hole and are a very friendly bunch.

Fundraisers!

As we rely solely on kind donations and fundraising activities we are always looking for volunteers to bring new ideas, enthusiasm and time to help us with our fundraising events. If you can help in any way, no matter how small (baking a cake, helping on the day)  or large (organising events, chairing the fundraising committee) the role we would be very happy to hear from you.

Some of our past fundraising events have been:

  • Garden parties
  • Pamper and shop evenings
  • Coffee mornings
  • Pie n Pea Suppers.
