Christmas Wishes Virtual event

Join us from your living room on 12 December as we celebrate all the incredible wishes you’ve helped come true this year

We are Guide Dogs. And we’re here to help people with sight loss live the life they choose. 

Children and adults. Friends and family. Whoever you are, our expert staff, volunteers and life-changing dogs are here to help you.

With a national lockdown in England and increased restrictions across the UK, please be reassured that we are doing everything we can to protect you. Our highest priority is the welfare and safety of our staff, volunteers, service users, donors and dogs. We remain committed to our charitable purpose, helping people with sight loss live the life they choose - when and where it is safe to do so. Our Covid-19 information and guidance provides the latest information on the services we are currently able to provide. If you, a loved one or friend has sight loss, we can help during Covid-19. Call our Covid-19 Sight Loss Information Line 0800 781 1444

If your child has a vision impairment, they may need to learn and explore the world in a slightly different way. Sensory activities and learning through play can help your child gain confidence, achieve their milestones and understand the world.
