Module 2 - Life Changers

2.3 Lesson plan

2.3 - Campaigns & making a change

Guide Dogs campaign to make the world as accessible to blind or visually impaired people as it is for everyone else, making life easier and fairer for people with visual impairment. The processes we go through to make changes are outlined below.

  • 1. Hear the views of concerned guide dog owners

    • Emails - Blind and partially sighted people often email us about their concerns, such as aggressive dogs
    • Local news - we check the news every day to make sure we aren't missing any important stories
    • Phone calls - we have a Freephone campaigns hotline that people can call up
    • Guide Dogs staff - we hear from other members of staff about problems their clients are encountering
