Volunteers are an important and valued part of Glaucoma UK. Since 1974, when Glaucoma UK was founded, volunteers have formed a key part of the work we do by taking part in fundraising activities, sharing experiences with the people we support and more.


Fundraising volunteers organise or take part in a whole host of events from organising a supermarket collection stand to running a marathon.

Our buddy scheme pairs up people living with glaucoma with a ‘buddy’ who is going through, or has already had, the same experience.

Consultation panel

Every year we respond to numerous consultations on all aspects of glaucoma care and policy, and we aim to involve our supporters in these activities.
