Would you like to be instrumental in helping someone to participate more fully in their local community and work towards greater independence? Guide Dogs are currently seeking volunteers to do just that as part of their ground breaking My Guide scheme.

My Guide is a service provided by Guide Dogs to support people who are living with sight loss to get out and about, to do the things they want to do. The role involves providing sighted guide assistance on the Isle of Wight.

Guide Dogs currently have 4 service users waiting and they would really like to build up confidence in getting out and about with the overall aim of being able to go out independently.
