My Guide Volunteers | Guide Dogs for the Blind Association

My Guide volunteers help people who are blind or partially sighted get out and about in their local community. Our My Guide service trains and supports volunteers to act as sighted guides, and allows them to make a real difference in the lives of local people.

My Guide partners take part in social and leisure activities, such as walking, shopping, football and visiting local coffee shops. You can support your My Guide partner by increasing their fitness and confidence through regular outings. As a My Guide volunteer, you can:

 -Make new friends;

 -Learn new skills to enhance your CV, including training endorsed by VISION 2020;

 -Help people with sight loss get out of their homes and back into the community.

My Guide volunteers generally give at least 2-3 hours of their time each week to this unique and interesting role.
