Welcome to the Maidstone Mobility Team

Our team of 26 Staff are based in Maidstone and Brighton providing services, support and advice to blind and partially sighted people within the following areas:

  • Kent
  • East Sussex
  • Brighton and Hove

Together with dedicated volunteers we work to deliver and raise awareness of Guide Dogs’ services and campaigns to enable people who are blind and partially sighted to get out and about on their own terms.

Did you know there are approximately 15,400 registered blind and partially sighted people living in the counties mentioned above?

In order to live a full life and contribute to the local community, people need to be able to get around on their own. Every hour another person in the UK loses their sight. Guide Dogs works to make sure that when someone loses their sight, they don’t lose their freedom too.

We deliver the following Guide Dogs’ mobility services:

  • The guide dogs service
  • Orientation and mobility training (cane training for those applying for a guide dog)
  • My Guide
  • Mobility services for children and young people (CYP), including:
    • Family support
    • Movement Matters
    • Education support
    • Access technology
    • Guide dogs and buddy dogs
    • Custom Eyes books

At any one time we’re supporting approximately 260 guide dog partnerships. Find out how our services could help you or someone you know.

Here to help

The Maidstone Mobility Team is here to help. If we can’t help you directly, we’ll do what we can to work with other service providers in the area to meet your needs.

So if you think we can help you or someone you know, or you’d like to know more about how you can support our work through volunteering or fundraising, just call, write or visit our office using the contact details provided.

Thanks for your support.
