Improving the health and well-being
of people living in East Yorkshire
and Northern Lincolnshire

 

Guide Dogs - £2560 to support people receiving the My Guide service which helps visually impaired people to get out and about, increase their physical mobility and access what the City of Hull has to offer. My Guide supports people with sight loss, to overcome isolation by matching them with a trained volunteer in sighted guiding, helping them to get out and integrate into the community. My Guide is a lifeline for many, who simply don't have an alternative. By training volunteers in sighted guiding skills and matching them with a partner, people with sight loss are enabled to reach their mobility goals and increase their independence. As well as providing a physical help, a My Guide volunteer adds colour, by making an event or place come alive through description.
