May 8 to the 14 is National Volunteer week.
Many people who are blind or have low vision rely on the support of volunteers to assist them in day-to-day life. This can include recreational and leisure activities, at home, in the work place and in school or further education.
We speak with Cassie Hassel, Volunteer Program Consultant, about the difference a volunteer can make, how people who are blind or have low vision can volunteer themselves and what motivates people to volunteer.
We also chat with Alison Davies a volunteer reader at Vision Australia radio.
