Seascape is the leading charity provider of support services for people with visual impairment in Fife. We offer a range of services including information, advice, rehabilitation, technology training, befriending and social groups.
Do you enjoy walking and being outdoors? Would you like to support someone with a visual impairment while enjoying and learning about nature?
Seescape are working with Ramblers Scotland to bring sensory walks to Dunfermline. The short sensory walks introduce clients to the textures and sounds of nature and learn how each tree is different. Strolling through the park they can interact with nature while making new friends outdoors.
As a volunteer it is expected that you will be friendly, approachable with good communication skills. You will be able to commit to regular attendance, travel independently to and from venues, as well as using your initiative where required to help with the overall smooth running of the group.
The following training is provided: Induction training, Guide Assistance training. It is a requirement that the volunteers actively feedback their training needs and the volunteer will be responsible for familiarising themselves with policy and procedure affecting their role.
