The charity makes life-changing differences for people with disabilities through the power of expertly trained dogs supporting people with autism, physical disabilities, learning disabilities and dementia, empowering them to live more independent lives. Top priority during the Covid-19 pandemic is the health, safety and wellbeing of their staff, volunteers, clients and dogs including practical tips to help your dog cope with the many changes, whether it be a pet dog or an assistance dog. The charity is constantly reviewing safety protocols to protect everyone connected with the charity and came to Westminster Group for essential advice and support.
We are pleased to support the charity by offering practical advice to aid the return to work of some of the staff and the donation of personal protective equipment (PPE) including face shields, face masks and hand held thermometers.
In response to the donation Dogs for Good stated:
‘We are very grateful to the Westminster Group Foundation for the donated items enabling us to re-start our post-lockdown operations in a very steady and measured way.’
We will continue to work with them going forward and look forward to meeting some of the amazing dogs in the not too distant future.
