Services Provided

Guide dog service

A guide dog can offer a unique, safe and effective way of getting about independently and confidently.

My Guide

The 'My Guide' scheme is a partnership between Guide Dogs and community organisations, which helps people with sight loss get out of their homes and back into the community. My Guide aims to reduce the isolation that many people with sight loss experience, helping to rebuild their confidence and regain their independence.

Starting Point

An on-line resource written by five expert organisations to give parents the information, support and guidance they need at the time of their child's sight loss diagnosis. While it is not a substitute for information and advice from a medial professional, Starting Point is a gateway to invaluable information and support.

CustomEyes Books

Guide Dogs CustomEyes service produces large print books for children with vision impairment. These are tailor-made for each child or young person, but they are only charged the recommended retail price. The customised large print books open up a whole world of imagination and learning, by enabling visually impaired children and young people to read the same books as their sighted friends and classmates.

Children's Mobility and Habilitation Service

Guide Dogs Cymru support to children and their families as they tackle the challenges of sight loss from birth through transition to adulthood.

Apply for Assistive Technology

Guide Dogs believes the right assistive technology – sometimes called ‘access’ or ‘adaptive’ technology – can help your child learn and play, just like everyone else. That’s why they've helped children and young people access a world of technology designed to suit their vision impairment.
