Support Dogs

Support Dogs

Support Dogs train highly skilled assistance dogs which allow adults to live independently and with confidence and help children stay safe and learn new skills.

We train dogs for:

Epilepsy Seizure Alert: Seizure alert dogs provide a client with a 100% reliable warning up to 50 minutes in advance of an epileptic seizure.

Autism Assistance: These dogs are trained to provide safety and to facilitate a more independent and socially inclusive life, for children and families.
Disability Assistance: Our dogs are trained to open doors, pick up objects and assist with dressing,  improving independence for people with physical disabilities.

Royal Voluntary Service

Royal Voluntary Service

For millions, later life can be a lonely and isolating experience. Simple pleasures like popping to the shops or meeting friends become increasingly difficult, or just impossible. But loneliness in older age need not be inevitable.  As one of the largest volunteering charities in Britain, our 20,000 volunteers support thousands of older people in need, every month, in hospital and the community.  Through transport services, social and lunch clubs and on-ward services throughout the NHS, we help older people stay social, active and independent.

The Children's Air Ambulance

The Children's Air Ambulance

The Children’s Air Ambulance is the first and only dedicated paediatric and neonatal transfer helicopter service in Great Britain, funded solely by charitable donations. When every second counts in the life saving treatment of a poorly child, the charity’s specially trained pilots are able to transfer their young patients four times faster than by road.

It’s a charity service whose advanced specialist facilities provide intensive care in the air for critically ill patients up to the age of 18, transferring them from local hospitals to specialist paediatric treatment centres.
