Guide Dogs for the Blind Association (GDBA)

We will not rest until people who are blind or partially sighted can enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else."

The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association works to deliver mobility and access services that meet the needs and aspirations of blind and partially-sighted people in the United Kingdom.

Independence - The GDBA have been expertly breeding and training guide dogs for more than 75 years, providing many thousands to blind and partially-sighted people of all ages and from all walks of life.

Research - Guide Dogs carries out research that provides sound scientific evidence on which to base their services, campaigns, policies and operational procedures (the way we do things).

Equal Rights Campaigning - Visual impairment is a fact of life for thousands of people, and with an ageing population many more will be affected by sight loss in the future.  They campaign alongside visually-impaired people for rights that most sighted people take for granted.
