Celebrating student volunteering

During 8–14 February 2021, TPT and Sight Loss Councils are celebrating Student Volunteering Week.

This is the 20th year of Student Volunteering Week in the UK. This celebrates how volunteering can improve student wellbeing, develops students’ employability and contributes positively to the wider and local community life.

We will be publishing case studies and a podcast featuring blind and partially sighted students who share their experiences of volunteering and how this expanded their skillsets.

Volunteer for TPT

TPT’s Student Services team is looking for students aged 16+ with lived experience of vision impairment to help shape and develop the Student Support Service. Volunteer with us and help us improve the lives of more students.

We are also looking for young people with vision impairment and aged 14-18 for our Young Voices programme. Your involvement would help us to forge change in education opportunities, career opportunities into employment and further education, social activities and mental Health support for other young people with vision impairment.

Volunteer for SLC

Sight Loss Councils influence positive change and improve services at a national and local level. And we are expanding!  We need more members for our existing SLCs and ones we are soon to launch.  If you are over 18 join us and make a positive difference to the lives of blind or partially sighted people in your area.
