Veterans With Dogs

Description:

Veterans With Dogs is the first UK charitable organisation to directly address the needs of mental health difficulties for former service personnel of the British Armed Forces.

Founded in 2012, they have developed programmes for the training of Assistance Dogs and Companion Animals to help improve quality of life for those who have experienced difficulties with mental health due to service.

Their work centres on encouraging active participation and involvement with dogs; promoting the health and well being of Veterans and their dogs by recognising and promoting the therapeutic bond. They believe that Veterans can overcome the obstacles in their lives that hold them back, increasing independence, self-esteem and value to society.

Veterans With Dogs tailor their work to individual circumstances - in partnership with Veterans and their families, communities and local organisations.

They work with Veterans:

  • Who need support
  • Who suffer psychological disability
  • Who experience severe difficulties in their lives
  • Who live isolated from normal society
  • Who own dogs as companionship animals
