Difficulties can be caused by unfamiliar or busy places or environments such as complex town centres.

Learning a few simple sighted guiding techniques can help your friends and family to feel ready and confident to help if they are needed.

We work alongside Guide Dogs to bring their Friends and Family Sighted Guiding sessions to North Staffordshire. These sessions are designed to provide helpful practical tips in an informal setting. Learn how to guide in a safe and appropriate way including through narrow spaces like doorways and up and down stairs.

Our next planned sessions can be found at our events calendar, booking is essential and sessions only go ahead if there are enough people booked on.

Please get in touch to book or for more information.
