Sight Loss Advisors


We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic, compassionate and empathetic professional to the role of Sight Loss Advisor at Galloway’s Society for the Blind’s Morecambe and Southport sites. These are key roles within our Services team. Being diagnosed with a visual impairment can be potentially devastating for both individuals and their families but as a Sight Loss Advisor you will work with individuals to identify solutions to their challenges through providing information, advice and guidance, demonstrating equipment solutions and delivering a range of activities that help empower, to build confidence and to help people remain independent after a sight loss diagnosis.

The closing date for applications is the 23rd January 2019.


Volunteer Roles


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.

At the moment we are particularly in need of:

  • Minibus Drivers in the Morecambe Area
  • People who can help in the delivery of our Assistive Technology courses, helping those with sight loss use IT to assist in their daily living
  • People who can help at our Tuesday Drop-In service at Penwortham, Preston
