Why we need your support:

Guide Dogs provide mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people. We also campaign for the rights of people with visual impairment, educate the public about eye care and fund eye disease research.

There are nearly 4,800 guide dog owners in the UK.

Did you know the lifetime cost of a guide dog is £50,000? The cost to a guide dog owner is just 50p.

The guide dog service receives no government funding and depends entirely upon public support - your support.
