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.

On the 17th 18th and 19th January 2020, this small group of Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS) volunteers will be taking on an 83 mile hike, carrying 60kg of life saving equipment for charity. Below ⬇️is a link to their donations page. Let’s help them reach their target!
