The ongoing success of our fundraising is crucial if we are to continue to train our dogs to transform the lives of even more people with disabilities.


Pubs, Clubs, Community Groups & Individuals

Whatever your experience, whether you are new to fundraising or overflowing with great ideas, we need your help. There are many activities and events that you can organise with friends and colleagues, ranging from black-tie events, charity auctions and coffee mornings to quiz nights and golf days. Or why not enter for a sponsored marathon or walk?


Regional Support Groups

Our Regional Support Groups play a crucial part in raising the awareness of Canine Partners, as well as much needed funds. Being a member of a group is fun and rewarding and is a great way to meet people. Why not join a group in your area?

If you would like to find out how to set up a new Support Group, join an existing group, or find out where we currently have Support Groups, please email Annette Denby  or call on 01730 716 052. More information is also available on our Support Groups page.

 

Schools

Perhaps you could invite one of our speakers to visit your school to hear for yourself what our amazing dogs can do to help people with disabilities. Demonstrations can also sometimes be arranged, please email Julie Graham or call 01730 716032.

Adopting Canine Partners as your "Charity of the Year" means pupils, teachers and parents can learn more about dog welfare and disability issues. Pupils can help to raise money by participating in organised activities like sponsored walks, dog shows, teddy bears' picnics, dress-down days and bad hair days.

 

Sponsored Challenges/Events

Were you inspired by the Olympics and now want to run a marathon, or do you and your friends hold monthly coffee mornings for charity?  If you are looking to take part in a sponsored challenge or organise your own sponsored event, please contact Libby on fundraising@caninepartners.org.uk or 01730 716 013 for your personal sponsorship forms and posters.

More dogs trained already and the intrepid CEO visits the big smoke (twice)

23 Jan

I don’t often get to put a suit on. Going to London Town always seems like a good excuse to pretend I’m a commuter, otherwise the dust tends to settle on the old dark blue M&S cloth. So the last two weeks have been pretty exciting, as I’ve had not just one but two occasions to take the train up from Sussex and get lost on the underground. The reason for the visits has been to visit venues where we are holding events this year in celebration of our 25th anniversary – the London Charterhouse looks amazing and will make a stunning backdrop for an event we will be holding in June, while the Cavalry and Guards Club looks similarly brilliant. We have been lucky enough to be granted a donation by the Club to allow us to put on an event there in September. 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 catharvey@caninepartners.org.uk

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