Guide Dogs helps to provide access and mobility for all blind & partially sighted people, including guide dog owners. We work with them to promote accessible and safe pedestrian and built environments, as well as improve access to the transport sector.
Visual impairment is a fact of life for thousands of people, and with an ageing population many more will be affected by sight loss in the future. We campaign alongside visually-impaired people for rights that most sighted people take for granted.
