People's Postcode Lottery

Together with the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, we're helping people with sight loss lead active and independent lives. Since 2018, players have been helping us to transform lives through numerous projects and core services, such as supporting the first stage of our guide dogs puppies' lives; funding the lifetime of a litter of guide dog puppies; supporting the re-development of our regional centres; funding our buddy dogs service and much more.

Players support the first stage of our puppies' journey

This year, players of People's Postcode Lottery are helping us fund the first stage of our puppies' lives - from 0-8 weeks old.

Puppies - from birth to eight weeks

Players are supporting the first stage of our guide dogs' journey. It includes the care of our very special guide dog mums and their puppies from birth to eight weeks old. 

Providing a combined 72 years of independence to people with sight loss

The amazing support from players is funding the lifetime of an entire litter of nine life-changing guide dog puppies. From breeding and expert training, supporting volunteers who care for and foster our puppies, through to life as an extraordinary guide dog. Players' support also ensures our dogs have a great life in retirement after years of providing independence and mobility to people with sight loss.

Each guide dog provides around eight years of support to their owner. By funding these nine puppies, players will enable around 72 years of mobility, helping people to live the lives they choose. Beyond mobility, our guide dogs also provide companionship, help combat loneliness and isolation, and enable people to become an active part of their community. Read how some of the puppies who are now fully grown dogs are getting on.

Thank you players!

Players' support is crucial now more than ever to meet the growing demand for our guide dogs and other services. We would like to thank all players for helping people with sight loss - enabling them to lead active and independent lives. Recent funding is awarded by Postcode Animal Trust, which People's Postcode Lottery manages lotteries for.

Nick Bell, Head of Philanthropy and Partnerships, said: “Players’ support is amazing and together we will be there for people with sight loss giving practical, emotional and life-changing support. We have a unique and fantastic relationship with players who have raised more than £6.8 million for Guide Dogs since 2018.”
