Our Impact

At Canine Partners we are committed to continually improving the services we offer and increasing the impact we make.

Our research provides insight into the difference our services make in the lives of the disabled people we support. This enables us to provide the best possible experience for our beneficiaries, and confidence that the income we raise helps disabled people live their life to the full. We actively seek out ways to create greater impact and collaborate to measure the changes we make.
