Vision Mate

Main Content

Vision Mate volunteers provide sighted assistance to a person who is blind or partially sighted. Activities may include reading, organizing things around the home, walking, assisting with errands, or heading on an outing or social visit. 
 
Vision Mates are matched with someone living in their community who has sight loss, for one or two hours a week in the person’s home or another suitable place, at a mutually convenient time.

To hear from a Vision Mate match, listen to this CBC interview.
