Friendship Dogs

We can provide funded 1.5 hours sessions for either groups or individuals under COVID secure arrangements

Our greyhounds will be brought to your location by our experienced handlers where participants will have the opportunity to spend time with the dogs.   Experience has shown that working with friendship dogs can help both the physical and mental wellbeing of people affected by loneliness, anxiety, depression, the recently bereaved, housebound, as well as those people living with dementia.

The service is available to Uttlesford residents affected by loneliness or isolation , those living with dementia or other long term health conditions.

Our dogs are brought to your location where participants can interact with them, either indoors or outdoors. Sessions last 1.5 hours.

This work is made possible by funding received from The National Lottery COVID Response Community Fund, as a deliverable of our Uttlesford Response, Recover, Sustain strand of work.
