Canine Friends Pet Therapy (vacancies)

A role for you and your pet.

One community initiative our clinical team utilises for rehabilitation is the Canine Friends Pet Therapy programme. Canine Friends Pet Therapy incorporates dogs into therapy programmes and residential living. Our clinical team use this programme to bring a different element to rehabilitation.

Canine Friends Pet Therapy Volunteers and their animals work alongside our Occupational Therapist to help our clients achieve their specific rehabilitation goals. This may include patting or brushing an animal to increase mobility in a client’s arm. Other goals may focus on improving communication, attention and sensory function.
