Situation

Physically disabled adults throughout the UK can often lose their confidence and self-esteem every time they have to ask for help with everyday tasks. Many cannot leave their homes without being accompanied by a carer or family member. With this lack of independence, the people we help lose their motivation to be active, to socialise and with this, they lose hope. Many feel unable to work or to study, even though they would dearly wish to do so.

Solution

Isolated and vulnerable members of our communities throughout the UK receive a profound and lasting range of benefits when partnered with our highly-trained dogs. We train our dogs to carry out practical tasks such as helping to get dressed, unloading the washing machine and opening doors which helps their owners to retain their independence. The bond between them provides daily reassurance, builds confidence, gives a sense of purpose, ensuring isolation is a thing of the past.
