Guide Dogs

Guide Dogs exists to provide life-changing services to the 360,000 people who are registered blind or partially sighted, and the two million people in the UK living with sight loss.

Children and adults. Friends and family. Our expert staff, volunteers and life-changing dogs are here to help people affected by sight loss live actively, independently and well.

We’ve been on this journey since our first guide dog partnerships were formed in 1931. We are best known for our world-famous guide dogs, but our work now encompasses so much more. In recent years, we have expanded our services with and beyond our dogs to help thousands more people with different needs lead confident and fulfilling lives.

We already provide life-changing services to thousands of visually impaired people; we know too there are thousands more who could benefit from our support.

We will be led by the needs of our customers and will provide services and support tailored to their specific needs.

By introducing new services, embracing new technologies, digitising some of the ways we provide services and collaborating with other charities and organisations, we will be able to support thousands more people living with sight loss than we do today.
