Join the team!


As a charity, we rely on support from members of the public to continue our work across Lancashire and Sefton. Our volunteers are essential to us – with many differing roles, we are always looking for new volunteers to get involved!


Working with us

Our incredible team of volunteers support everything we do at Galloway’s, from gardening and painting to fundraising and administration. We couldn’t do our work without the help of people like you – and we know that together, we really improve the lives of children and adults with sight loss. Volunteering is also a great way to meet new people and gain valuable work experience, developing new skills and confidence; in many instances we will provide you with a reference if required.
