Work with us

Working for Deafblind UK is truly fulfilling. It’s more than just a job - it’s changing people’s lives! Whatever your role with us, we make sure that you are never far away from the people who we support and that you are fully aware of the impact we have. We find, this helps us to get up in the morning!

You could make a real difference to John in Merseyside, Sheila in Birmingham, Tony in Wrexham and thousands of others. It is a supportive, engaging and rewarding place to be; we work hard and we play hard, we learn and we grow.

Volunteer with us

As a valued volunteer, you could be the only one that a deafblind person speaks to in days; you could be the difference between someone leaving the house that week or not; you could give someone the chance to do something they never thought possible – and what’s more, you don’t need any special experience or skills to do it!

Having worked here for many years now I can honestly say that Deafblind UK puts the people we support first and cares for its customers and members. I have learnt many new skills and developed both on a professional and personal basis. Every one at Deafblind UK is friendly and approachable and really makes work enjoyable.

I love being an outreach officer. Every day is different, sometimes I represent Deafblind UK at community meetings with other organisations, other days I am running social groups, hosting information stands at local events or delivering awareness training to other organisations and care homes.

I want make a difference to someone’s life. I enjoy giving back to people. I may be in their situation one day. I visit Dilwyn every Wednesday for 2-3 hours at a time. We have a coffee together, a little bit of cake and a chat about things. Dilwyn tells me about his life and I talk about what I’ve been up to. It’s nice. We have become good friends, and we know a lot about each other now.

I have learned a lot at the group that I am applying to my own life. It has helped me a great deal to cope with my disability. I really have a heart for people who have lost their sight. Being a volunteer meant that I was in on the ground floor when I was diagnosed with Macular Degeneration. I have learned to appreciate kindness, and the importance of being kind to myself.
