Deafblind man in park with volunteer

Volunteers are integral to JDA - we simply couldn't do without them! 

We're always looking for reliable, caring people to help us do more.  Use your spare time and skills to do something great.  

  • You might enjoy driving, wheelchair pushing, providing companionship, community fundraising or raising awareness
  • You could put your professional skills to good use, helping with our marketing, PR or fundraising
  • If you're a hearing aid user yourself, or a fluent signer, you could be invaluable in supporting clients
  • From shopping, to arts and crafts, to helping to create fun-filled activities, to joining a fundraising committee ... there's so much to be done!

For roles within our Hearing Loss Outreach Service, please visit our Outreach Service Volunteers page.

For general opportunities, please contact Andrew Goodwin at andrew@jdeaf.org.uk

If you are Deaf and would like to volunteer then please contact Janine Greensite at janine@jdeaf.org.uk
