Sunbeam House Services: Volunteer

We are looking for a Volunteer to befriend a young man who is blind.  The young man would like a Volunteer to go out socially with him and attend live musical events within the Dublin and Wicklow area, using public transport.  The young man is a sociable friendly person who wants to spend time with a like-minded male volunteer, twice a month. 
The Volunteer will be supported by Sunbeam House Services. 
The Volunteer will be asked to use the ‘sighted guide technique’, also known as ‘the human guide’.  This technique is a way of walking with, and guiding in a safe, effective way, a person who is visually impaired.  Training in this technique will be provided to the Volunteer. 
All Sunbeam House volunteers are required to be Garda vetted, reference-checked and to complete mandatory training. 

Please email info@sunbeam.ie.  Closing date 23/11/21.
