It is central to our mission and values that we have a place at the heart of the local communities where we work.
Dogs For Good
AKA has supported Dogs For Good (formerly known as Dogs for the Disabled) since 2009! We have funded the first year of training for a series of pups selected to become assistance dogs to help people with disabilities lead more independent lives.
Dogs For Good also trains therapy dogs and specialist dog handlers to enable them to work within the community and schools to help individuals overcome challenges and improve their lives.
Our team members love a challenge and share our passion to support charities and good causes. They love rising to challenges in work – and in their free time too. For more information on our latest fundraisers, please take a look at our Social Media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) and our newsletters!
Paediatric clinical case manager Mary Gilman organises her own trips volunteering around the world, mostly working with children and their extended families. She also volunteers for a children’s charity for vulnerable children and teenagers.
Another of our North West based case managers, Gill Gorry, recently began fundraising for Headway Lancaster and Morecambe Bay by designing and selling cards on Etsy!
