COULD you talk to people about the role assistance dogs play in the lives of disabled people.

The charity Canine Partners, in West Sussex, is marking its 25th year by launching a programme to train volunteers to go into schools, colleges and youth groups to talk about the work the charity does.

Dogs trained by the charity do everyday tasks such as opening doors, helping people to undress, pressing buttons and emergency response for those who would otherwise find it difficult or impossible.

Volunteers must be over 18, have their own transport, email access and be required to have a DBS check.

Call 01730 716051 or email education@caninepartners.org.uk.
