Donate your leftover currency to Guide Dogs

Guide Dogs provide life-changing services to the 360,000 people who are registered blind or partially sighted

2 million people in the UK are living with sight loss, with 70% of adults receiving no support within the first 12 months of diagnosis, and are likely to encounter poor education, high unemployment, depression, loneliness and financial insecurity throughout their lifetime.

Guide Dogs provide a range of tailored services which enable adults who are blind and partially sighted to take control of their lives and get around with confidence and empower children with a visual impairment to make the journey to an independent life, without limits.

Guide Dogs services help thousands of people with different needs lead confident, independent and fulfilling lives

Through the charities research programme they can provide people with sight loss with the knowledge and choice of services they require to enable them to live actively, independently and well. The research carried out at Guide Dogs, both internally and in collaboration with external organisations, help the charity to understand the needs of their service users as well as take care of their dogs.
