Guide Dogs aims for a future where every person with vision impairment has the confidence and support to live their lives to the full. We deliver life-changing services, but we know that people who are blind or partially-sighted face challenges using public transport and with access to buildings, goods and services, and health and social care, as well as inaccessible street design and other obstacles. We are here to ensure that changes. 

We are expanding our Policy & Campaigns team, introducing local managers to further the aims of Guide Dogs in the English regions including relations with local government, local societies, local authorities and other relevant organisations.
