Guide Dogs

We will not rest until blind and partially sighted people can enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else. We offer a range of services and activities for children and young people and provide valuable advice for parents and teachers. Trained and experienced staff are there for parents with practical advice and support from the moment their child is diagnosed with a visual impairment. Starting Point is a guide for parents from first diagnosis including a telephone helpline, online and printed resources. We also plan recrrational activites and offer educational support.
