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.

Paula Meenan, Engagement Officer

I love being a Community Engagement Officer and supporting people with a combined sight and hearing loss. Each day is different and can involve representing Deafblind UK at meetings with other organisations, being involved with social groups in the area, hosting information stands at various events across the area to promote the services we offer, and delivering awareness training to other organisations and care homes.

I began volunteering for Deafblind UK after a friend suggested it. I popped around for chats with a local member. We had a general catch up, and I'd also read old books, poems, and eventually letters they'd kept from old friends and family that they'd ask I read to them. That one hour a week really helped them, and they were always very thankful for the company.

Doing crossword with member

I do the Times crossword with my client each week during my 2 hour visit. We occasionally manage to complete it. The Friday crossword is much harder than the one on Thursday.
