The group, which launches next month, will lobby European Union institutions on issues affecting blind and partially sighted people.
Tony Aston, the new chairman of Guide Dogs for the Blind, said: "The European Commission is having an increasing impact on what happens. Although Guide Dogs already campaigns at a European level, we will have much more impact if the guide dog movement of Europe makes its pitch."
The group is the latest move by Guide Dogs to build up a campaigning role for itself. It set up a campaigns team last year.
"Campaigning is as much a way of life now as training guide dogs and training people to use them," said Aston.
