My Guide sighted guide

My_Guide_small_web_280_200_tl_53_c1_c_c

Many blind and partially sighted people across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire find it hard to go out alone. We want to change that.

Reduce isolation and gain confidence

Working alongside our partners at Guide Dogs, we deliver the My Guide service, which aims to reduce the isolation that many people with sight loss experience, helping people rebuild their confidence, regain their independence and get more out of life!

My Guide volunteers

As part of the scheme, visually impaired people are matched with a My Guide volunteer who has received training endorsed by VISION 2020.

Volunteers will be be able to;

• Guide their partner to social and leisure activities
• Help people establish lasting relationships with community members who can, in turn, help them get out more
• Work with each visually impaired person to set clear goals to help them become more independent.

All volunteers will undergo a Disclosure Barring Check or DBS (formerly known as CRB checks)
