Service summary

Formerly known as The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, Guide Dogs is the registered charity which organises and trains dogs for the visually impaired to assist visually impaired people to remain as mobile as possible. Covering all London boroughs, the London Team is responsible for training all guide dogs given to new clients and existing guide dog owners.   

Applications for a guide dog is open to young people as well as adults.
