Payroll Giving

Give as You Earn is a scheme that enables employees to donate to any UK charity straight from their gross salary (before tax is deducted) meaning that you receive immediate tax relief. This means that a monthly donation of £10 straight out of your payroll, actually only costs you £8!

Offering Matched Giving is a powerful and popular way of encouraging employees to sign up to Payroll Giving.

Your company can make donations that match the contributions of your staff - potentially doubling the money that will help train more assistance dogs for people with disabilities nationwide.

Creating awareness and support

Your company could be the vital link to tell more people about Canine Partners. Staff, their family and friends may be able to help through volunteering or know someone with a disability that could also benefit from a canine partners assistance dog.

An amazing month, an amazing team!

15 Oct

Apologies for this being bashed out in haste on my iPad, especially when I seem to have some sort of glitch, either on my recent iOS update or my brain; I'm not sure which. The result is a very strange assortment of predictive texts, including 'testament' and 'exult'. Which is odd, as they are not words I frequently use in these blogs. Read more

Canine Partners’ Leicestershire Training Centre

Canine Partners needs to raise £3.1million to build a second Training Centre in order to train more dogs and change more lives.

We have purchased a site in a village called Osgathorpe, halfway between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Loughborough, which has a range of barns, outbuildings and associated land. The plan is to replace the barns and adapt some of the outbuildings to create the specialised buildings we need.

Having a Midlands Training Centre will not only increase our output, it will also make the charity far more accessible for those on our waiting list who are unable to make the long journey to our centre in West Sussex. 42% of the applications we received last year were from people living in the mid and northern regions of the UK. Many of our existing partnerships will also benefit from being able to receive support from the new centre.

The site will consist of a training centre and office facilities, fully accessible accommodation and kennelling.

This is an extremely exciting time for Canine Partners and we would be delighted to receive your support.

For more information about this project, please contact Cat Harvey on 01730 716018 or email

Jobs available at the new centre will be advertised on our Vacancies page here: Work for us
