We're a group who want to continue training dogs to transform the lives of individuals with autism and full-time wheelchair users.

We’re trying to make things better for individuals with autism and full-time wheelchair users. We also have therapy dogs in numerous settings such as prisons, hospices and schools.

We do this by providing Autism Assistance Dogs, Disability Assistance Dogs and Therapy Dogs in various settings our aim is for every school in Northern Ireland to have a full-time school therapy dog.

I am the founder of the charity and I am passionate about the work our charity does. We train dogs to transform lives and I have had the pleasure of seeing children and their families lives change, going from isolation to being a part of their community. In a short space of time we have achieved so much and we are changing how services are being delivered. I am immensely proud to be involved in changing lives. We won the Queen's Award for Voluntary Services in 2018.
