My Guide

My Guide is a service provided by Guide Dogs to support people who are blind or partially sighted get out and about, to do the things they want to do. There are three strands to the service:

Someone who is blind or partially sighted is matched with a trained volunteer, so that they can reach their goals. Guide Dogs also works together with other charities around the UK to provide the My Guide service.

This training can be applied in a range of ways, such as supporting a friend or family member with sight loss, helping at a specific event such as a sporting event or just as needed in daily life.

We work with businesses and organisations to tailor accessibility training for their staff, enabling staff to effectively serve customers who are visually impaired.
