I was proud to show my support for Guide Dogs UK in Parliament recently.

The charity hosted an event which celebrated some key successes from 2023, including the requirement that will see the majority of buses fitted with audio-visual announcements. As well as extra funding for tactile paving on railway stations which will enable people with sight loss to get out and about safely and with confidence.

I was really pleased to speak with guide dog owners and cane users about the difference these changes will make, but also the many challenges that still need to be tackled to enable people with sight loss, to travel and live independently.
