SPONSORSHIP, FUNDRAISING & DONATIONS. 

Recovery Assistance Dogs is a registered charity. Our charity relies entirely on voluntary donations. We raise money to help support people living with mental health conditions around the UK from generous gifts from people like you, including membership, donations, sponsorship and fundraising.

Any donation you make is important to us. We want to help as many people as possible and train more dogs to improve the lives of adults affected by challenging conditions.

SAFEGUARDING ADULTS AT RECOVERY ASSISTANCE DOGS

Safeguarding means protecting an adult’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about people and organisations working together to prevent and stop both the risks and experience of abuse and neglect. Adult safeguarding is something which is done with the adult at risk of harm, enhancing their involvement, choice, and control.
