Taking on a charity trusteeship at the Society is a rewarding and beneficial way to volunteer your time. You will have the chance to support and shape the work and strategic direction of the Society, and you can make a significant difference to individuals in Huntingdonshire living with sight loss.

We are always looking for new trustees which can offer a diverse range of skills, knowledge, qualities and experiences. These might include legal or financial knowledge, principles in diversity and inclusion, knowledge of Human Resources, life skills, personal lived experience of sight loss, or knowledge of the local community.
