About Guide Dogs
Guide Dogs provide mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people. They also campaign for the rights of people with visual impairment, educate the public about eye care and fund eye disease research.
Guide Dogs have been expertly breeding and training guide dogs for more than 75 years, providing many thousands to blind and partially-sighted people of all ages and from all walks of life.
They also deliver confidence-building rehabilitation services to adults, young people and children – including long cane mobility training and communication and daily living skills.
Guide Dogs carries out research that provides sound scientific evidence on which to base our services, campaigns, policies and operational procedures.
They fund ophthalmic research projects, and carry out canine research in-house.
Visual impairment is a fact of life for thousands of people, and with an ageing population many more will be affected by sight loss in the future. Guide Dogs campaign alongside visually-impaired people for rights that most sighted people take for granted. These include access to services and transport, freedom of mobility, and provision of better rehabilitation services. Working closely with guide dog owners, service providers, other voluntary organisation and MPs, we’ve won major victories and have successfully lobbied to influence policies and legislation.
