At Guide Dogs we believe that independent mobility doesn’t just give you the ability to get from A to B. It opens up a world of possibility to the 70% of people who are blind and partially sighted that lack the confidence to join in everyday activities.

Lacking confidence and having to rely on the support of family and friends makes it harder to enter employment, to access healthcare and to enjoy a social life.

At Guide Dogs we’re here to make sure that, when someone loses their sight, they don’t lose their freedom as well.  

Guide Dogs achieves this with a range of services:

  • Our world-famous guide dog service.
  • The My Guide service, training volunteers to use basic sighted guiding techniques, to help people with sight loss get out of their homes and back into the community.
  • Adult orientation and mobility training to equip people to get about independently and safely, both inside and outside the home.
  • Buddy dogs, giving children and young people a vital boost in confidence, by fostering a sense of responsibility and companionship through the human/animal bond.
  • Our partnership with Blind Children UK, whose mobility specialists work with children of all ages – and with their families – to make the world an easier place to live in.
  • Campaigning alongside people who are blind or partially sighted for the rights that most sighted people take for granted.
