A national charity has launched an appeal for volunteers to lend their support in 2018.

Guide Dogs is looking for committed volunteers to fulfil a broad range of roles across Shropshire, Staffordshire and The Black Country.

A spokesperson said: “Volunteering can have a massively positive impact on people’s health an reduce loneliness, and improve mental health.

“It can also provide opportunities for personal development allowing people to gain practical experience and skills providing a path to qualifications and further employment.”

The Guide Dogs Shrewsbury Mobility Team offers a wide range of geographic locations for volunteering. There is also a diverse range of opportunities for volunteers in dog roles, such as puppy walkers and boarders, but also in non-dog roles, such as fundraising co-ordinators, photographers, sighted volunteers.

The diverse range of roles ensures there is an opportunity for people with a diverse range of skills training and support is provided for all roles,
