Activities & Benefit


  • The community that will benefit from our CIC are people living in the East Midlands & individual disabled young people & families across England and Wales.
  • Young people with disabilities who have experienced trauma or who have any type of disability will benefit from the provision of canine assisted intervention through canine assisted therapy classes which will benefit them by promoting child development and social skills. We will also offer classes and private sessions which teach the young persons dog to help mitigate the impact of their disability.
  • Members of the wider community will benefit from joining our volunteer programs which include therapy dog teams where members of the community take their dogs into organisations that support young people in order to run canine assisted activity sessions. These volunteering roles support employability and help reduce isolation of volunteers. Volunteer roles are targeted towards (but no exclusively towards) dog owners from the community who are isolated or live with disabilities.
  • Therapy dog visits to organisations within the east midlands that support young people with disabilities/recovering from trauma (including but not limited to schools, youth groups, nurseries, hospitals and hospices) this service aims to improve organisation attendance and engagement (especially in schools), promote positive mental health and and wellbeing and improve inclusion and social skills.
  • Pawsitive Squad CIC will also be offering general obedience dog training to the local community which will help promote responsible dog ownership and accessibility to dog training for individuals with disabilities. Any surplus from this service to help fund our services for young people with disabilities.,
