Canine Partners - Trained dogs to transform lives

Our canine partners provide practical day to day assistance for people with physical disabilities with tasks that may be difficult to perform. They also provide increased confidence, independence and social interaction.

A canine partner assists with everyday tasks which are difficult, painful or impossible for individuals with a disability to perform, such as:

  • helping with undressing
  • loading and unloading the washing machine
  • retrieving or picking up dropped items
  • helping with the shopping
  • retrieving money and card from a cash machine
  • opening and closing doors
  • pressing a pedestrian crossing or lift button
  • fetching help in an emergency
