At Guide Dogs, the safety and well-being of our Clients, staff, volunteers and supporters is our Number 1 priority.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus is causing significant concern in the community and we are working closely with the relevant authorities to ensure we are following the appropriate guidelines for containment of the contagion within the Guide Dogs community and our loyal supporter base.

We have therefore made the difficult decision to cease all involvement in events until further notice.

We hope that you are able to understand that this is a very difficult decision for our Team to make, but we wholeheartedly feel that it is the right one.

We would like to reiterate the importance of keeping yourself informed on how you can best protect yourself and your loved ones during this time, through the regular updates provided by your local state and federal authorities.

We remain eternally grateful for the support you have shown to our organisation. Right now, we are focussed on ensuring the support for our Clients is maintained during this difficult time for everyone.

Thank you for your support at this time.
