Dogs for Autism is the only charity to provide assistance dogs free of charge to autistic people of any age, anywhere in the UK. Independence, access to education, the workplace and the community bring joys and riches we take for granted. The people supported by the charity experience profound barriers to experiencing their world, but with the help of an assistance dog their potential is finally unlocked in a way that no other support or interventions achieve, providing a lifeline where no comparable help is available.
It takes around two years to train a Dogs for Autism Assistance Dog. Funding provided by The Andy Thomson Foundation will be used towards the costs of the training journey of these lifechanging assistance dogs.
