VOLUNTEERING 2010 National Student Volunteering Week, which took place from 22 – 28 February, celebrated and acknowledged young students who generously offer their spare time to support others in their community. SeeAbility’s Heather House in Tadley, which celebrated 10 years of service in 2009, offers a specialist and unique nursing and social care service for sixteen young adults, who have a visual impairment and a life-limiting degenerative condition, particularly Juvenile Battens Disease. Here a dedicated small team of student volunteers visit the young individuals, offering friendship and support. In return for their time and effort, the student volunteers gain experience and references for future career choices as well as knowing they have made a difference to someone’s life. One volunteer who joined us in 2008, visited on a weekly basis, playing games and talking with our young residents. In September 2009 he moved to London to study medicine but continues to support and visit during the holidays when he returns home. , Volunteer co-ordinator, Anita McIntyre said, ‘We are indebted to all the volunteers and would be delighted to speak to anyone over 16 and who can offer the young people living here some time�. Further information can be found on our website www.seeability.org If you would like to discuss volunteering opportunities further please call Anita McIntyre on 0118 981 7772 or amcintyre@seeability.org SeeAbility is the operating name of The Royal School for the Blind founded in 1799.
