Story

Every day, 250 more people join the 2 million already living with sight loss. This number is set to double by 2050, which is why our work is more important than ever before, however, we can only continue our life-changing work, such as our guide and buddy dog services, mobility training, education support, sighted guides and much more with your support.

"Having a guide dog is a life-changing experience and I'm phenomenally grateful to Guide Dogs for enabling me to be more independent" - Priya, guide dog owner.

How your funds will change live...

£125 buys a Starter Kit for a new guide dog owner

£332 could provide eight weeks of Early Diagnosis Support to a child with sight loss and their family

£710 could buy a Birthing Kit containing all the essential equipment for a guide dog mum to safely deliver her puppies

It's thanks to people like you that we can continue to provide life-changing services, So, a huge thank you and lots of luck for your challenge!

The ability to get around is vital in order to live a full life yet thousands of people with sight loss never leave home alone. We empower visually impaired people to do that and rely on the support of the public to fund the guide dog service.
