Receiving ADI accreditation means we have met their high standards of excellence in all aspects of our autism assistance dog training programme.

We’d like to thank everyone who has made this possible for us, including our trustees, staff and volunteers who have worked so tirelessly.

ADI is the leading authority in the Assistance Dogs industry. It establishes and promotes standards of excellence in all areas of assistance dog acquisition, training and partnership. Having previously been a candidate member of Assistance Dogs UK (ADUK), achieving ADI accreditation has now granted us full membership status in the UK organisation. All ADUK members are accredited by ADI and/or @igdfsocial The International Guide Dog Federation working to the highest training and welfare standards.

Earning ADI’s accreditation is an achievement of which we are immensely proud.

You can learn more about all the members of ADUK here.
