Join the Guide Dogs community!

Joining the Guide Dogs community means that you will be helping more people with sight loss to live actively, independently, and well.

There are a variety of roles that you can get involved with. Whether you can give a minute, an hour, or a lifetime we have something for you. You can work directly with our dogs or with people who are visually impaired. You can support raising awareness of our services, organise events for us and so much more.

Without our volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to reach and support as many visually impaired people as we do. We're thankful for every one of our volunteers and would love for more people to join the Guide Dogs family.
