Guide Dogs

Back in May, The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, whose Southampton Mobility Team is based in Chilworth, was looking for temporary homes in our area for trainee guide dogs. Volunteers for that are still welcome, but now there are two more volunteering opportunities:

  • Volunteer Puppy Walkers provide the full-time care and education of a puppy from seven weeks of age until they are between 12 and 14 months old.
  • My Guide Volunteers are matched with a local blind or partially sighted person who needs your support to get out and about for a few hours a week. No previous experience is required and full training is provided.

For more information on any of these topics, please e-mail Hazel Kelly. There are also a couple of leaflets, here and here.
