Here at BHP IT we are proud supporters of Sheffield based charity Support Dogs. We sponsor beautiful Autism Assistance Dog “Azerley” as well as holding office based fundraising events to raise money for this amazing life changing charity.
About Support Dogs
Support Dogs is a national charity dedicated to improving independence and quality of life for people with living with some of the most challenging medical conditions. It trains specialist assistance dogs to achieve this. These highly trained dogs help with everyday tasks for people with physical disabilities, give advanced warning of seizures for people with epilepsy and provide safety and support for children with autism and their families.
Epilepsy Seizure Alert Programme
Epilepsy is the most common neurological illness with over 600,000 cases in the UK.
Seizure Alert Dogs are trained to provide a 100% reliable warning 15 to 45 minutes prior to an oncoming seizure. They enable their owner to find a place of safety, therefore reducing the risk of injury and maintaining their dignity.
Autism Assistance Programme
Autism Assistance Dogs are trained to provide safety and to facilitate a more independent and socially inclusive life for both the child with autism and their family. Their clients are children with autism who are often unable to communicate or express their feelings in a way that is understood by others. They have little sense of danger or of the consequences of their actions. 1 in 100 children in the UK are diagnosed with Autism.
Disability Assistance Programme
Disability Assistance dogs are trained to improve independence for people whose physical disability significantly reduces their quality of life. They specialise in training a client’s own pet dog to provide this support. This includes raising an alarm in an emergency, opening and closing doors, picking up objects and assisting with dressing and undressing.
