Guide Dogs relies on volunteers who give their time for so many things. From the volunteers who spend much of their time caring for dogs, guiding people who are blind or partially sighted, driving or raising funds, to those who come out occasionally to hold a tin or cheer on marathon runners, volunteers are closely involved in almost every area of activity.

By volunteering for Guide Dogs you'll be helping to make a huge difference to the lives of people who are blind and partially-sighted. But that's not all - you'll be part of a great team, you'll be learning new skills and we promise you'll have a lot of fun!

We are always looking to recruit new volunteers in a variety of different roles across the South West region, from Puppy walkers to helping our local branches to raise awareness and vital funds for us. If you would like to find out what roles are available in your area then please contact Amanda Bealing on 07920 285 752 or at the Exeter office 0345 1430204 or e mail at amanda.bealing@guidedogs.org.uk Or you can check out current vacancies on our interactive map.

Here are some quotes form some of our local volunteers “

“I enjoy the events and get a ‘buzz’ out of fundraising…What could be better than raising money for a good cause and having fun at the same time”

From one of our puppy walkers - “It’s like an addiction. When one goes you feel sad, but when the next one comes in they bring all their love with them.”
