Guide Dogs provide life-changing freedom and mobility to blind and partially sighted people. (Reg no: 209617)

For over 75 years Guide Dogs has been providing trained guide dogs for thousands of blind and partially-sighted people - bringing independence, mobility & freedom to their lives. We campaign for equal rights for visually-impaired people and influence policies & legislation. Our research includes opthalmic research projects & in-house canine research which provides sound scientific evidence on which our services are based. We want a world where blind & partially sighted people can enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else.
