Streets Ahead

Have you ever...

Tripped on a broken kerb? Been hit in the face by an overhanging bush? Struggled to find a safe place to cross the road? If you have, you are not alone - and imagine if you were blind or partially sighted! This is why Guide Dogs are launching their Streets Ahead campaign. Read more about Streets Ahead
