Dogs for Autism

Dogs for Autism is a registered charity which supports children and adults across the autistic spectrum, from those who are non-verbal with complex learning difficulties, to high achieving university students. Dogs for Autism trains and places Autism Assistance dogs, at no cost to the autistic client, to change lives, helping mitigate any negative effects of autism through trained interventions and unconditional friendship.


Independence, access to education, the workplace and the community bring joys and riches taken for granted by most. The people we work with 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.


How you can help: It costs £20,000 to change the life of an autistic person by funding their dog from selection to retirement. A donation of £1000 would enable us to provide a training session a week for six months, while £5000 would provide bonding sessions for three autistic people and their dogs for a year.
