Talking Newspapers are always pleased to hear from new Volunteers. Your local TN will advise you on the procedure for becoming a Volunteer with them.  There may be a short audition for people wishing to become readers.  Training in the various tasks involved in producing a TN will be given on an ongoing basis.

The main tasks involved in the production of a TN can be summarised as:

·         Reading

·         Technical - Operation of recording/copying equipment.

·         Administration - Maintenance of efficient administrative systems, processing mail etc.

·         Fundraising - Organising and participating in fundraising projects


Here is your first step to helping blind and partially-sighted people in your community to feel included, meeting new friends and having fun:
