The My Guide project matches a person who is blind or partially sighted with a trained volunteer. The volunteer guides the visually impaired person so that they can reach their mobility goals – this may include being able to go to the gym, joining a local coffee group or just walking in the local park. The project gives individuals greater freedom and increases their independence. Guide Dogs will match you with a My Guide volunteer for 3-6 months or until your goals and objectives have been achieved.
My Guide provides basic training in safely guiding a person with sight loss. This training can be applied in a range of ways for example, in supporting a friend or family member with sight loss, guiding people you meet in the street who need assistance or helping at a specific event.
