Who we are:

UK’s first charity exclusively providing Autism Assistance dogs (Children & Adults)

What we do:

Our dogs are ‘puppy walked’ by professional dog trainers who live locally to our client families. Bonding work and developmental training within the family and with the autistic child/adult starts in early puppyhood. The journey towards final placement is designed to be organic and seamless, with strong relationships building over time.

The needs of every autistic client and their family differ, however the interventions our dogs are trained for include:

  • Tethering via a ’tummy lead’ harness or second dog lead to encourage calm and settled walking behaviour outside of the home.
  • Deep pressure work to help regulate the proprioceptive system and reduce anxiety.
  • Communication games to encourage social engagement, speech and language and social confidence.
  • Settling behaviours to promote relaxation and self-regulation.

The things you can’t measure – Intuitive comfort, unconditional friendship, fun, laughter and love.

Why we need you:

The limit to how many dogs we can train and place with families is financial, and once we have more funds in place we will be able to train more dogs to support more autistic people.

1. SELECT A CHARITY

A list of charities that we are partnered with are here for you to select. Some of the charities that we work with have fundraising targets and others are self-funded by yourself, each charity we work with will state if they will contribute to some of your jump cost or if you need to self-fund your own place.

2. BOOK YOUR SKYDIVE

You can book individually or as a group with just a £50 deposit per person on any operational day. Some of the charities we work with have reserved spaces on pre-selected days that you are more than welcome to join.

3. START FUNDRAISING

OK you’re all set – This is now the time to start fundraising for your selected charity, we recommend to set up an online fundraising page as all funds you raise will automatically go to the charity of your choice. Please remember you are unable to use any money raised to pay for your skydive and if you have a target set by the charity you have to hit this 3 weeks before the date of your jump to ensure these funds are online for the charity to see!

Charity not listed? Not a problem...

If your charity is not listed you can still book an independent charity skydive.
