Palliative Paws


Animals are a significant support system for our clients. They are very much a part of the family network and bring their own brand of ‘happy’ into the home. As our clients get weaker they are unable to continue to exercise their dogs as they once did and that is where our volunteers can get involved.

A volunteer will visit a home up to two times a week to walk the the family pet. All dogs are risk assessed by EPC.

If you are someone who likes the fresh air, furry creatures, walking regularly and wants to care for the four legged supporters of our clients then this might be the role for you.
