Organisation details

Description

The ability to get around is vital in order to live a full life yet thousands of people who are blind or partially sighted never leave home alone. Guide Dogs empowers visually impaired people to do that and relies on the support of the public to fund its services.

We breed and train guide dogs which provide life changing mobility and there are currently 4,500 working guide dog partnerships in the UK. It costs £5 per day to support each working guide dog partnership. The full lifetime cost of a guide dog from birth to retirement is around £50,000.

We also provide a range of mobility and other rehabilitation services such as white cane training as well as campaigning passionately to break down barriers – both physical and legal – to enable blind and partially sighted people to get around on their own.

The team covers the following postcode areas: DG, KA, ML, G, PA, IV, KW, HS and ZE.

Services offered:

  • Volunteering
  • Mobility training
