Guide Dogs UK My Sighted Guide Free Training
Guide Dogs is offering free ‘Sighted Guide’ training to communities.
The charity sector and commercial/corporate organisations can take advantage of this community training, much like learning how to perform first aid, sighted guiding is a useful life skill. You will learn a new skill and it will give you the confidence to know how to act when you meet someone who is blind or partially sighted, and the practical guiding techniques to help them if they need it. We cover a brief overview of the most common eye conditions, the barriers to independence people face, emotional consequences of sight loss and communication.
Although this training is of a serious nature, it’s very interactive, you will take part in a practical blindfold walk and everyone comes away feeling like it’s been really worthwhile! Great for team building. The training helps create a more inclusive society for people with vision impairment.
Guide Dogs are experts in training assistance dogs, but we also work with families and communities and our ambition is a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support, they need to live their lives to the full.
