Calling young voices to forge local change

Are you a young person who wants to enable blind and partially sighted people to live the life they want to lead?  Join our new Young Voices team to make positive change happen in your community.

Volunteering can be a very positive experience for young people, and one of the best ways to develop confidence and new skills.  You will have the opportunity to meet new people and gain valuable experience that looks great on your CV or university application.

Thomas Pocklington Trust are keen to hear from young people aged 14-18 who are blind or partially sighted and who want to give their time to achieve a positive future.


If you live in England why not volunteer for us? You will have the opportunity to attend monthly meetings to highlight and discuss the issues blind and partially sighted people face in your region.

We want to help young people make a change on:

  • Education opportunities
  • Career opportunities into employment and further education
  • Social activities
  • Mental Health support and confidence building


You will be part of an exciting team of volunteers who share your passion for change so that blind and partially sighted people can fully participate in society.
