Guide Dogs 'Tech for All' service closing for 2021

Guide Dogs 'Tech for All' pilot project has now closed for 2021 after 5,000 children and young adults received iPads and iPhones to support them to live actively, independently and well.

The next step is to assess the success of this pilot against service outcome measures. These results will help shape how Tech for All develops in 2022. The initial results are incredibly encouraging with 3,725 families approaching Guide Dogs for the first time and over 50% of applicants interested in their other services too. The charity has heard from many families about how the devices are enabling far more independence and social connections.

Guide Dogs hope to be able to reintroduce the scheme in 2022 and are encouraging all interested families to register their interest via their website so that they can be contacted with an update next year.

Guide Dogs has issued the following Q&A about the closure of the scheme:
