Summary

Collection Box Coordinator - Guide Dogs

Detailed description

Could you be that person who can help us make the difference to the lives of those living with sight loss? Collection boxes are a great way for us to raise essential funds to do the work we do within Guide Dogs.

Guide Dogs help people with sight loss live the life they choose. Our ambition is a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support they need to live their lives to the full.

It costs £54,800 to support one single guide dog throughout its life, so without our amazing fundraisers raising money for us, we wouldn't be able to provide our life changing services!

In this flexible role as a Collection Box Coordinator, you'll be responsible for placing and collecting our iconic Guide Dogs collection boxes around local venues and businesses. Collection boxes raise a huge amount of income for us so it's a really important role.

This is a great role for anyone who has never volunteered before as you don't require any prior knowledge or experience. You'll be able to learn new skills while giving back to the community and making new friends! You'll learn a lot about visual impairments too which is important knowledge you'll have for the rest of your life. It's also a great role for students as the time commitment required is flexible and the role can easily be incorporated into your daily life.

“You don’t have to give loads and loads of time, you can give whatever time you can give and we'll still be really grateful" - Guide Dogs student volunteer and guide dog owner.

We provide full training in the role as well as an induction to the organization. You will receive ongoing support from a designated member of staff.

About Guide Dogs

We are Guide Dogs. And we’re here to help people with sight loss live the life they choose.

We’re a charity, almost entirely funded by donations, and we are the world’s largest assistance dog organisation.

We’re also the largest employer of specialists dedicated to helping children and young people overcome the challenges of sight loss.
