What support is available in my area to help someone with sight loss get out more?

There are local schemes that offer travel assistance to blind and partially sighted people. This may include people travelling with you to the shops or travelling as part of an organised group. To find out if any schemes exist in your area, contact our Helpline, or visit the RNIB Sightline Directory.

Another travel assistance scheme is called My Sighted Guide, run by Guide Dogs. With My Sighted Guide, they select a trained volunteer or a friend or family member to help support you achieve mobility goals. This could be improving fitness, building confidence, accessing services, and building friendships in your community or gaining confidence on public transport. Further information can be found on Guide Dog's My Guide web pages.
