Would your group be interested in hearing about how our assistance dogs can empty the washing machine, help a disabled child or adult to undress, or pick up dropped items? Or how a dog can transform the lives of a family with a child with autism, acting as a continuous focus enabling the child to remain calm in places they may have previously found too challenging.

Dogs for Good is a life-transforming charity, creating exceptional partnerships between people living with disability and specially trained dogs. Through practical assistance, a dog can offer freedom and independence to people who face a lifetime of challenges.

We do ask for a donation to cover the cost of organising the talk which is normally set at £50 (and goes to the charity), but if this is problem, there may be other ways in which you can support us instead. Please mention this to us when making your initial enquiry.

We may have a volunteer Registered Speaker within your area, who can visit your group and tell you about our incredible dogs. If you'd like to get in touch then please contact us on 01295 252 600 and ask to speak to a member of the Community Fundraising Team or email events@dogsforgood.org.


About Dogs For Good

Dogs for Good makes life changing differences for people with disabilities. We work to support people and communities through the help of a trained dog, improving and enriching the lives of both.

Our assistance dogs support adults and children with a range of disabilities and also children with autism. We train activity and therapy dogs to work with specialist handlers in communities and schools. Our Family Dog team also gives specialist advice and support to help families with a child with autism get the most out of their relationship with their pet dog.
