The Therapy Dog Team provide emotional support for vulnerable people, children and individuals with mental health issues. There may also be occasions when internal staff may benefit from this support.
We currently need volunteers in Dover, Folkestone and Thanet, as well as West Kent from Maidstone outwards. Please be aware if you apply for this role it will be one of these locations that you will be posted to.
Therapy dogs are not police dogs, this is a stand-alone voluntary support role.
As a Therapy Dog Team volunteer, you must own your own dog. You will both be assessed to a standard by our accredited dog specialist and a public access test will be completed. We will accompany you on initial visits to mentor and support you. If you can volunteer the services of you and your dog for the benefits of others, you may want to consider becoming a member of the Therapy Dog Team.
