Organisation aims and objectives

We provide mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people. We also campaign for the rights of people with visual impairment, educate the public about eye care and fund eye disease research. There are over 4,950 guide dog owners in the UK. If you are blind or partially sighted, a guide dog could change your life. Find out how we can help you get out and about. My Guide aims to support blind and partially sighted people to get out and about with a sighted guide volunteer and do the things they want to do. We offer a range of services and activities for children and young people and provide valuable advice for parents and teachers.
