Friends and Family training

Are you a person with a visual impairment or do you know someone with sight loss?

We can provide bespoke training for friends and family members. The training will consist of a basic introduction to sight loss awareness and sighted guide techniques which can be done in the comfort of your own home.

Rebecca’s story 

"My vision has recently taken a dip and I have had to start addressing the whole sight loss issue head on." 

Rebecca needed her family and friends to change and adapt round her. "I needed them to stop being so 'sighted' around me. Saying things like “over there” and pointing or walking off in busy places." 

"The Friends and Family training from Guide Dogs has given them more confidence to be able to be open about issues. It gave me a greater sense that people understand what I was going through. Losing your vision is much easier when those around you are aware and have the confidence to tackle issues with you.”
