Community

It is central to our mission and values that we have a place at the heart of the local communities where we work.

Sponsorships

Dogs For Good

AKA has supported Dogs For Good (formerly known as Dogs for the Disabled) by sponsoring a puppy. 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.

Nottingham Forest Football Club

We have been a sponsor of Nottingham Forest players since 2013. As the team plays in the Championship which covers the regions in which we work. Our sponsorship means we can offer tickets to the clients we support as part of the activities their support workers can access.

Fundraising

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 example:

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.

Therapy support worker Niki Slater did a sponsored tandem sky dive in aid of the brain injury charity, Headway.

Clinical case manager Nick Snowden cycled 170 miles across the country from Morecambe to Bridlington in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
