Meet our key funders
We are grateful to all the many individuals and organisations who so generously support our work.
RS Macdonald Charitable Trust
Funding is enabling us to launch and pilot a new Dementia Family Dog service and further develop the virtual dog therapy sessions we have been piloting during lockdown
Funding will ensure our embedded approach to provide holistic and person-centred support for the dementia community, including continued specialised support packages for our families with assistance dogs.
Dementia Community Dog, Billy, is funded by Tynetec and named in special memory of their late colleague and friend Billy Graham.

Dogs for Good
As a founding partner, Dogs for Good charity provide and train all of our assistance and community dogs that go on to become life changing Dementia Dogs.
As Scotland's leading dementia charity, Alzheimer Scotland provides best practice and helps promote Dementia Dog's work throughout the widespread national dementia community.
In the beginning...
Four Glasgow School of Art product design graduates and their tutor created the original concept. All this team were an integral part of the initial pilot development with major contributions in research, graphics, service design and project film footage.
