Service Dogs UK
Service Dogs UK operates from two locations in Sussex. They benefit veterans from the Armed Forces and Emergency Services who are from Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey. The charity is having to expand due to demand demonstrating there is a clear and urgent need for the service they provide.
Service Dogs UK came about following extensive research into the need for PTSD dogs in the UK for our Armed Forces and Emergency Services. the dogs are trained to the highest of standards and are trained to so all of the assistance dogs commands but they are also trained to wake up veterans from nightmare, to ‘ground’ them when they are having flashback or dissociating, interrupt certain behaviours, take them to the nearest exit in the event of a panic attack, fetch medications and provide positional support when the veteran is anxious and needs space.
Devon Freewheelers EVS, also known as the Devon Blood Bikes, provides a free transportation service to the NHS across the county of Devon and beyond if required. The Blood Bikes transport whole blood, blood & other biological samples, medication, patient notes, medical equipment & supplies and donor breast milk. The charities volunteers also provide a whole blood transportation service to the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance every 48 hours, and in between if the blood is used to treat a patient, and also provide a LyoPlas (blood replacement product) to the 2 Devon Air Ambulances as and when required. Devon Freewheelers receives no funding from the NHS for any of these services and relies on volunteer fundraising, donations from the general public and the support of local community groups and businesses to remain operational.
