egdfEuropean Guide Dog Federation
The European Guide Dog Federation is a European-wide organisation of bodies representing guide dog users and guide dog service providers.
It has been an official Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) since 2007. Currently there are 31 members and in 20 European countries. Some of its full member organisations have been working together for many years. Some members are fledgling organisations and others have passed this stage and are busy developing new guide dog services.
Before the creation of EGDF, guide dog users were largely invisible citizens at EU level, seen as a sub-set of the blind and partially-sighted community. They missed opportunities to influence EU decision-making directly in favour of their own specific needs and interests and rarely acted together. EGDF enables guide dog users across Europe to play a direct role in shaping policy and legislation to bring about their full and equal citizenship. We work closely with Assistance Dogs Europe on campaign issues we have in common.
