Why we need your support
- Every hour another person goes blind
- There are currently 180,000 blind or partially sighted people in the UK who rarely leave home alone
- We're training around 780 guide dogs each year, but to help meet the demand for new guide dogs we desperately need to create a third more guide dog partnerships by 2020
- Half of the dogs we train are needed to replace dogs who have retired
- Training a guide dog costs around £39,700 and takes around 24 months
- The guide dog service receives no government funding. The charity Guide Dogs relies on donations from individuals to continue our life-changing work.
- It costs around £50,000 to support a guide dog from birth to retirement.
