How we've helped Scott

Scott always knew he wanted to be a farmer. But when he lost his sight his life changed dramatically. Worried how he would continue to look after his two young daughters, he reached out to Guide Dogs. Now paired with guide dog Milo, Scott has the confidence to pursue new studies, a new career and is on the way to representing his country at the highest level of judo.

Life changers isn’t just a quote – it’s so true. Milo has saved my life in more ways than one. From my bad mental health, to physically saving my life whilst out walking on the streets. My whole family have seen a change in me since Milo came along.
