Would your group be interested in how a support dog can change the lives of those living with autism, epilepsy and disability? From opening doors and fetching the phone in an emergency to alerting their owner prior to an epilepsy seizure, support dogs are trained to enable people to lead more independent and active lives.

Support Dogs is a charity dedicated to to increasing independence and quality of life for people with various medical conditions. We provide, support and train specialist assistance dog partnerships to achieve this.

We appreciate and enjoy the opportunity to tell people about how specialist assistance dogs change the lives and have a dedicated team of volunteers to visit your group. Please contact us on 0114 261 7800 or fundraising@supportdogs.org.uk to see if we have a speaker in your area. If possible we will also arrange for one of our amazing support dogs to visit you.

We ask for a £40 donation to cover the cost of organising the talk although if this is a problem, please do let us know.

About Support Dogs

Support Dogs is a charity dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families living with physical disabilities, autism and epilepsy. We train and provide specialist assistance dogs to help people feel confident, safe and able to lead active and more independent lives. We specialise in three specific programmes:

Autism assistance dogs for children aged three to ten years with autism. The dogs are trained to provide safety for the child and reduce stress in social environments.

Seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy. The dogs are trained to provide a 100% reliable, 10-55 minute warning prior to the onset of an epileptic seizure, which enables them to get to a place of their choosing and take control of the situation.

Disability assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities. The client’s own pet dog is trained to perform tasks which are specifically tailored to their individual needs; providing them with greater independence and safety.

Established in 1992 Support Dogs is a registered charity and provides all it services entirely free of charge to those in need of them.
