Mission

We bring trained dogs and people together to help them overcome specific challenges and enrich and improve the lives of both.

What we do

We train assistance dogs to help adults and children lead more independent lives, at home and in the community.

We provide advice and support to people who want a pet dog to help them overcome specific challenges within their family.

We train and support community dogs and their specialist handlers to work in activity and therapy in communities and schools.

We continually explore new ways that dogs can help people.

Values

Quality – in all we do

We are committed to achieving high standards and advancing best practice.

Individual approach

We value and respect each person and each dog as an individual and strive to help them all fulfil their potential and to learn from them. We engage with everyone openly and honestly.

Dog Wellbeing 

We work to ensure the health and happiness of our dogs. We will never compromise their welfare.

Innovation

We continually develop new ways dogs can help people, through our curiosity, learning and expertise.

Collaboration

We work together and with others in teams, to advance our collective knowledge, operate more effectively, and thereby help more people.

Every pound counts

We make the most of every pound and every hour of volunteering given to us, by spending wisely, working efficiently and remaining focused on our mission
