Sight for Surrey is an ambitious charity offering a lifetime of support to people who are blind or partially sighted, Deaf, deafblind or hard of hearing. Their mission is to support people to overcome their day-to-day challenges, achieve their potential and lead an independent life.

Sight for Surrey are seeking to recruit a Family Activities Worker to join the Children & Young People’s Team.

The successful candidate will have experience of working with children and young people and be imaginative, creative and organised.
