Keeping you all safe

At Guide Dogs, we take the safety and wellbeing of our volunteers and the general public very seriously. Volunteers should take necessary steps to ensure their own and the public’s safety at any event they organise, seeking advice and guidance if required.

To make sure you stay safe and healthy, we have created a number of factsheets (in various accessible formats) to cover the key areas such as computer use, top tips for drivers, manual handling, and dog attacks. Start with the "Top Tips for Volunteers" for an overview and then select any of the other documents.

If these factsheets do not cover an aspect of your role, or if the factsheets raise additional questions for you, speak to your main Guide Dog contact.
