Work experience


We offer work experience placements throughout the year; each placement lasts for 5 days, Monday to Friday. You will help and support our Specialist Advanced Training and Dog Welfare Teams. There will be a variety of tasks including kennel duties. Throughout your week, you will also spend time with the Fundraising and People Teams, to provide an insight into the ways we work together to transform the lives of people with physical disabilities.

To be considered for a work experience placement, you need to have an interest in our charity and want to work and spend time with people and our dogs. You need to be 16 years of age and above and ideally live close to our National Training Centre in Osgathorpe, Leicestershire. Sometimes we do accept applicants from further afield, but you will need to arrange and pay for your own transport and accommodation for the duration of your placement.

If you wish to be considered for a placement, please complete the enquiry form and the Volunteer Team will be in touch.
