Charity Project – Canine Partners
Canine Partners is our charity project for February. They are a registered charity that provides an invaluable service by training assistance dogs. The dogs then go on to help people with physical disabilities, including both civilians and members of HM Armed Forces.
The dogs are trained to help with common everyday tasks that can be very difficult for an unassisted person with disabilities. For example, the dog may help with opening and shutting doors, unloading awashing machine, picking up dropped items, pressing buttons and switches and even getting help in an emergency. By providing this help, the dogs increase independence, confidence and self-esteem, to say nothing of the companionship brought about by a loving canine partner. Having an assistance dog can help a person with disabilities develop a greater sense of security and increase their social interaction.
Canine Partners receives no government funding and relies solely on public donations. For further information visit www.caninepartners.org.uk or phone 08456 580480.
