Support Dogs

For Autism, For Epilepsy, For Disability

Thank You! You’re Amazing!

Dear Peter and Members of the Province of East Kent

Thank you so much for choosing to give a wonderful donation of £1,250 to us to enable our continued work with people in Kent. It is incredibly kind of you and your support means so much to us.

What would we do without incredible supporters like you?

We are a charity that relies on donations like yours and we are already putting it to good use, training life-changing specialist assistance dogs to improve life for those affected by autism, epilepsy, and disability.

By supporting us, you’ve done something really special. You have enabled a child with autism to be matched with their “best friend”, a support dog who will be their safe place in a world they find frightening. An adult with epilepsy will now be able to live their life without fear and danger of their unpredictable seizures. Disability will no longer define lives, rather people will live with dignity, independence, and confidence.

I would be delighted to talk to your members at any of your upcoming meetings and also invite you to our London showcase event to be held in November. As soon as we have further details of this I will send them through to you as this will be a wonderful opportunity for you to hear how your donation will change lives and meet some of those that your donation supports.

Everything we do at Support Dogs is only possible because of wonderful supporters like you. Your generosity means the world to us, the children, adults, and their families we support, and the dogs we train.

Thank you

Support Dogs

What we do

Support Dogs (registered charity number 1088281) is a national charity dedicated to increasing independence and quality of life for people with various medical conditions. We provide, train and support specialist assistance dogs to achieve this.

We specialise in three specific programmes:

  • Autism assistance dogs for children with autism. The dogs are trained to provide safety for the child and reduce stress in social environments. You can read more about this programme here
  • Seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy. Our dogs are trained to provide a 100% reliable, up to 50 minute warning prior to the onset of an epileptic seizure. This enables the client to find safety and be in control over their seizure, allowing a much more independent life. You can read more about this programme here
  • Disability assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities. The client’s own pet dog is trained to perform tasks which are specifically tailored to their individual needs, providing them with greater independence and safety. You can read more about this programme here
