Reading Association for the Blind’s building in Carey Street is really well used by our staff and Members.

During lockdown, we are taking the opportunity for some much needed building improvement work that we need help with.

We are looking for a volunteer Building Improvement Organiser & Helper.

Previous experience with domestic or commercial building work is ideal but not essential.

It will involve

  • Helping with contractors & advisors
  • Looking at plans and identifying ways forward
  • Being flexible and adapting to project needs
