What we do

In the UK today, almost two million people are living with sight loss and of those, around 180,000 rarely leave their homes alone and many suffer from depression and struggle with feelings of isolation.

Our aim is to provide people with sight loss with the support they need to be able to move around safely and confidently, to get out of their homes and be able to live life the way they choose.

We are best known for achieving this through our world-famous guide dogs, but our work now encompasses so much more. In recent years, we have extended our work to other areas to help people with sight loss tackle obstacles they face on a daily basis.
