A life-changing appeal

This October, help fund the lifetime cost of seven guide dog partnerships to give greater independence to people living with a vision impairment.

Guide Dogs exists to provide life-changing services to the 360,000 people who are registered blind or partially sighted, and the two million people in the UK living with sight loss.

We provide a range of services with and beyond the dog to help thousands of people with different needs lead confident, independent and fulfilling lives.

We are currently responsible for around 8,000 dogs

Sighted guides

To understand more about our sighted guiding service and help us raise awareness of how it can change lives, Sophie spent time with My Guide trainer, Fran. Fran taught her how to guide someone confidently and in the best way for them.
