We offer a variety of canine assisted activity (CAA) programs both virtually and face to face to enable young people with additional needs to wonderful benefits canine assisted activities can provide. Our canine assisted activity programs are open to young people with additional and alternative needs or disabilities (SEND), who are recovering from trauma or who identify as LGBTQ+. We DO NOT require a diagnosis or proof of need to access these programs, if you believe your child (or grandchild, foster child etc) will benefit from these sessions then they're very welcome. For young people accessing the face to face CAA programs in Nottingham, they don't even need to own a dog.
As a non profit organisation we keep our costs as low as we can. Many clients use their 'short breaks' funding towards our session. disability specific charities may also be able to provide funding towards our canine assisted activity sessions.
All of our canine assisted activity sessions can be booked through our events page. If you've not joined a canine assisted activity session before please could you provide details of the young persons needs upon application so we can ensure we tailor the session to their needs.
