Find a Guide is getting a makeover!

Our Find a Guide programme has been helping visually impaired people find guide runners across England to support them to run for nearly 2 years now. We've been listening to feedback about the database and have made some improvements to make it even easier for visually impaired people to find a guide runner and run, wherever and whenever suits them! We've upgraded the database with a new look and lots of improved functions.
