The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association
Our mission is to provide guide dogs, mobility and other rehabilitation services that meet the needs of blind and partially sighted people.
The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association shapes its services to meet the needs of its community. Whilst guide dogs are central to our work, we also provide practical living skills training such as reading and writing as well as other forms of mobility for example long cane training - often in partnership with local authorities.
Guide Dogs funds work into ophthalmic and canine research, investing in new technology that could enhance the lives of the UK's blind and partially sighted population.
Guide Dogs is also one of the country's largest trainers of professionals working in the field of visual impairment and is one of the founder members of the International Federation of Guide Dogs Schools.
