Fundraise with us

You can help Guide Dogs change the lives of people with sight loss.

Without the right support, losing your sight can feel like losing everything: your confidence, your freedom and your identity. Your plans for the future and hopes of living the life you choose.

Every day 250 people in the UK start to lose their sight. Every day, Guide Dogs provides the life-changing services and support for people affected by sight loss. And every day, we need your help. 

With your support, we can help children take their first steps and make their first friends, and help adults embrace fulfilling careers, adventures and relationships.

Fundraise any day, in any way, and change lives forever.

How your fundraising changes lives

Sight loss can make the world a lonely place. Without the right support, it can hold children back from discovering who they are and what they’re capable of. It can cut adults off from their careers and passions, from the people they love and the places around them. You can help us change all that. 

However you choose to fundraise, you can help us change lives forever.

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.
