My Guide

My Guide aims to support blind and partially sighted people to get out and about and do the things they want to do. The My Guide service has vetted and appropriately trained volunteers who use guiding techniques to help people with sight loss to work towards the mobility goals they want to achieve. This could involve accessing activities and places of interest in the local community, learning familiar routes and improving fitness.

The My Guide service can also provide training in sighted guiding techniques to friends and family in order for them to acquire the skills to guide safely.
