How can I be guided safely during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic?

Sighted Guiding

Where possible, your best option will be support from a sighted guide within your household or support bubble (household bubble), with whom contact remains unrestricted. You will need to follow the DHSC guidance Getting support outside your home and Sighted Guiding guidance by RNIB, Guide Dogs and Thomas Pocklington Trust.

There are still restrictions on where you can go and who you can meet. 

Details of how the restrictions are being applied can be found on the gov.uk National lockdown: Stay at Home web page.

Details on the roadmap out of lockdown can be found on the gov.uk Covid-19 Response Spring 2021 web page.

All of the devolved nations of the UK have similar levels of restriction on meeting people outside of your household and on movement, although the specifics are slightly different for each. For more details, follow the links below:

There are a series of instructional videos on the Guide Dog website covering the essentials of how to guide.
