Tips for hotel staff: How to communicate with blind and partially sighted people

Blind or partially sighted guests might use a long cane or a Guide Dog, or they might be accompanied by a sighted companion.  Whatever the case, there are some simple adjustments which will make their stay much more enjoyable.

Here are some helpful hints and tips.


Puppy Walking

Guide dog puppyPuppy walking is a crucial volunteering role which prepares guide dog puppies for their working life ahead by familiarising them with different environments including the home, towns and public transport.

Volunteer puppy walkers provide the full-time care and education of a puppy from six weeks of age until they are between 12 and 14 months old. The puppies then return to Guide Dogs to begin formal training.
