|Charity Information||Every hour, another person in the UK goes blind. When someone loses their sight, we are here to make sure they don’t lose their freedom too!
Losing your sight shouldn’t mean losing your independence, confidence and freedom too. But our world is a tough place to be if you have sight loss – so much so that thousands of people with sight loss rarely leave home alone and many more feel isolated and depressed.
Guide Dogs wants to change the way sight loss affects people’s lives.
We help people with sight loss live their lives as independently as possible. We work with people of all ages through all stages of life, providing different types of support to meet their individual needs.
Our partnerships – whether that is a guide dog partnership, My Guide partnership or our collaboration with other organisations – changes lives every minute of the day.
Almost two million people in the UK are living with sight loss and by 2050 there could be nearly four million. That means it’s vital for us to be able to offer those people the support they need and we are specialists in giving that support.
We rely on donations from individuals to continue our life-changing work. The guide dog service does not receive any government funding. You can find out more about our work by visiting our website www.guidedogs.org.uk or to make a donation and support our work visit our page at www.guidedogs.org.uk/donate
It costs £5 per day to keep a guide dog partnership on the road and every minute of every day, Guide Dogs spends £100 to make independence possible for people who are blind or partially sighted. Please help us to continue our vital work.

“We are proud to support Steve and are extremely grateful to him for choosing Guide Dogs as his charity to support during this project. Steve is an inspiration to many blind and partially sighted people who feel cut off from people and the things around them. The journey Steve is taking with Beauty unseen will encourage other blind and partially sighted people to gain the freedom and independence they deserve”
