From tomorrow the rules on social gatherings are changing and it will become against the law to meet people you do not live with in groups larger than 6. There are, of course, exceptions and, as a charity and group of volunteers, our team members fall under that catagory. All our members give up their time free of charge. This includes responding when the police call us to assist in searching for a missing vulnerable person, as well as training both members and their dogs. A qualified dog can take 2 years to train and those skills must be practised regularly to keep our dogs ready and able to respond when required. During COVID lockdown, it has been imperative to keep our members skills current and up to date. We found new and different ways of doing this and as restrictions lifted, we were able to get back to some 'normal' training. We have researched the new regulations coming in, and are pleased to see that we can continue our training. If you see the team out and about, please rest assured we have strict COVID19 policies and risk assessments in place, and are maintaining social distances at all times. Please do feel free to chat to us and we will happily tell you more about our work. ...

Today raises awareness about this tragic issue and works to prevent it through education and support of those who struggle with suicide ideation every day. Interrupting someone’s thoughts can and does save lives! Please watch the short film below
