The organisation enables the visually impaired to live a life of freedom and mobility. Guide Dogs also campaigns for the rights of people that are blind or partially sighted.

Campaigning and lobbying
Guide Dogs works with adults and children that are visually impaired to deliver confidence building rehabilitation services which can include anything from long cane mobility training to daily living skills. For thousands of people throughout the country, visual impairment is simply a fact of life. As the population grows older, an increasing number of people will experience loss of sight in the future. Guide Dogs is preparing for this by campaigning with visually impaired people for the kind of rights many people take for granted. The organisation works closely with owners of guide dogs, service providers and Members of Parliament and has won many significant victories and has successfully lobbied to influence policy and legislation.
