Helping you to help others.

OPP OF THE DAY: WhatsApp Communication Assistant, Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB)

Are you confident with using WhatsApp? Are you looking to volunteer from home at a time that suits you? Do you want to gain experience of working with a large national charity? Then we need to hear from you.

RNIB wants to test the use of WhatsApp to be able to reach blind and partially sighted people who have previously never accessed our services. The role is simple. You agree to us sending you WhatsApp messages from RNIB every month with details of activities and events available. By signing up to this role, you agree to then share the information with people you know either personally or professionally. The key is reaching more people with sight loss, so they are aware of what is available. Our aim is to reach people with different levels of vision and a variety of age groups and communities across the UK. Contact with RNIB’s customers is not part of this role.

This opportunity is available to anyone who can spare 30 minutes each month, including people who are living with one or more eye conditions. RNIB are open to you sharing your personal experience to help us understand what is working and provide feedback on the content and responses from people.


From anywhere in the UK and at any time or day that suits you.

Ability to use your own initiative when sharing messages. Knowledge of using WhatsApp.
