Sighted guiding service

Do more of the things you love and open up new opportunities with a sighted guide. Whether it’s partnering up with one of our friendly volunteers as part of our My Sighted Guide service or training alongside a loved one, you can explore new surroundings, form friendships and enjoy even more independence.

We are gradually reinstating services in line with government guidelines and continue to keep in touch with our existing service users. We are dealing with new enquiries in a phased way and will be in contact with you as soon as possible to progress your enquiry.

How My Sighted Guide could help you

As well as promoting mobility, our volunteer sighted guiding service can build your confidence and improve your social interactions by:

  • improving your independence, confidence and ability to get out and about
  • enabling you to participate in social, leisure and fitness activities of your choice
  • creating new friendships and connections in your community
