Frequently asked questions


When Steve met May

“The first decisions I made to make my life better was to get independent again. That was the biggest thing for me. 'Cause I wanted to be able to get up in the morning, put my shoes on and just go out.”

17-year-old Lucy had to put a hold on her plans to study medicine at university when she lost her sight four years ago – but now, guide dog Olivia is helping Lucy maintain her independence.
