We are a national charity and rely entirely on voluntary donations
Your support means so much to us
We rely entirely on voluntary donations and need your support, so that we can help more people.
Our autism assistance dog programme works to increase safety and the ability to have more socially inclusive life for children aged between 3 and 10 years of age with autism and their families.
Our seizure alert dogs are trained to provide a 100% reliable warning up to 50 minutes prior to an oncoming epileptic seizure, enabling clients to get to a place of safety, and enabling them to live more independently.
Our disability assistance dogs are trained to support their owners by carrying out tasks tailored to their needs such as dressing and undressing, loading and unloading the washing machine, and raising the alarm. They also enable clients to lead more sociable, independent lives.
