Guide Dogs (Aberdeen)

Charity registered in Scotland SC038979

Our vision is for a society in which people who are blind and partially sighted enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else.

Our purpose is to deliver the guide dog service and other mobility services; to break down legal and physical barriers; and to enable people who are blind and partially sighted to get around on their own.

Our values mean that we will always seek to be trustworthy and transparent; that we will always be innovative and responsive; and that we will collaborate with others wherever that is to the benefit of people who are blind and partially sighted.


Current opportunities

Can you help? We have visually impaired people in Aberdeen who are looking for volunteers to accompany them out locally. My Guide volunteers help people who are blind or partially sighted get out and about in their local community. Our My Guide service trains and supports volunteers to act as sighted guides, and allows volunteers to make a real difference in the lives of local people. If you’d like to make a huge difference to someone’s life, forge a new friendship and learn a new skill, we’d love to hear from you! We will provide full training on how to safely guide someone who is visually impaired. To apply, please visit https://www.guidedogs.org.uk/how-you-can-help/volunteering-for-guide-dogs/ .
