The principles below are intended for all blind and partially sighted individuals who require sighted guiding assistance, and have been developed in partnership by RNIB, Guide Dogs and Thomas Pocklington Trust. They are based on guidance in force in England on 31 March 2021 but people should stay up to date with National lockdown: stay at home and more detailed current government COVID-19 advice, as guidance is subject to change. In the case of any ambiguity, government-issued guidance should always take precedence.
