The Guide Dogs Singapore (GDS) was founded with the mission to help the visually impaired enhance their quality of life. To this end, we focus on providing mobility training to the blind or visually impaired, and pair suitable candidates with Guide Dogs.
Our new logo shows a close and unique relation between a man, his guide dog and a cane, representing freedom and independence. The slogan “Enabling The Visually Impaired” reflects our values to provide the Visually Impaired (VI) community with life skills that enable them to be self-sufficient.
We are a non-profit voluntary welfare organisation, and have been accorded Charity status by the Commissioner of Charities. Furthermore, we are registered with the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) as an associate member and we hold an Institute of Public Character status.
Today, we are committed to making further inroads for Guide Dog access with building owners, food establishments and regulators, because it is our firm belief that Guide Dogs can be an even better help and companion for the visually impaired if they are better integrated into society.
