If one of our themes interests you, please come along and join us. If you know someone who would benefit - a family member, friend, neighbour, please let them know and bring them along to meet us.

Guide Dogs My Guide Service
We are looking to recruit volunteers in the area to help support our My Guide service. My Guide is a free service that helps people with a vision impairment get out of their homes and into the community with a volunteer as their sighted guide.
My Guide fully trains you as a volunteer, to provide confident sighted guide assistance, on a regular basis, to people living with sight loss, to help them achieve their goals, such as:
- Access services in your community
- Gaining confidence on public transport
- Engaging with your local community
What Will I Get Out Of It?
- Make a life-changing difference to someone in need in your community
- An opportunity to build experience and knowledge of sight loss and develop your existing skills whilst doing something that you enjoy
- Help a charity do more while becoming a valued and integral part of the Guide Dogs team meeting with other Guide Dogs' volunteers
If you can spare a couple of hours a week and would like to know more information please contact the Guide Dogs team at Maidstone on 01189 838711 or email [email protected]
