Focus Birmingham volunteers are an integral part of the charity, providing services at our Harborne site, in our service users’ homes across the city and in the wider Birmingham community.

As a volunteer, you will be assigned a Focus Birmingham staff contact who will support you with your volunteering, arrange any training that is required and ensure that the experience is rewarding and fun.

Volunteer roles cover a range of activities from administration to working directly with service users who are visually impaired or have other disabilities. If you would like to volunteer, all you have to do is have a look at our current opportunities listed below, decide which ones would interest you and then apply.
