Turning The Tables On Access Refusals In UK With Guide Dogs’ App

Guide Dog UK

If you’re heading out to meet friends or just to sit down for a quiet coffee in a local cafe, the last thing you want as a guide dog owner is to face a refusal.

In 2023, the UK Guide Dogs charity reported that an alarming 81% of guide dog owners have faced illegal refusals of entry into businesses and services, prompting the charity to launch the ‘Open Doors’ campaign.

This initiative includes a free app that enables guide dog owners to report these access refusals promptly. You can download the app for Apple devices or the app for Google smartphones now.

Double Tap contributor and regular guest Robin Christopherson reviewed the app and showed how easy it is to share your refusal story.
