Waterman Aspen in the Community

Be My Eyes

One of our clients, Manchester City Council, shared with us some ways in which we could volunteer within the community. We signed up to a few volunteer sites and Divisional Director Linda McGregor chose ‘Be My Eyes’.

The charity makes it so easy for support to be offered, using a simple phone app. As a sighted volunteer you help just by installing the Be My Eyes app and responding when the alert comes from blind or low-vision person requesting assistance from sighted volunteers.

Jade Tonge from Manchester City Council said: “MCC encourages all of their suppliers to give back to the local community through various social value opportunities. We are delighted that WA has found a charity that goes the extra mile for those that really need it. A wonderful initiative that any supplier can get involved in.”
