         2008 Year of the Assistance Dog  
  Assistance Dogs UK Dog Star Awards    

2008 will be known as Year of the Assistance Dog, allowing the charities Support Dogs, Hearing Dogs, Dogs for the Disabled, Canine Partners and Guide Dogs to jointly-campaign for better services and rights for all assistance dog users.

As part of this new collaborative approach to campaigning, Support Dogs will be introducing a new Assistance Dogs Access Award.

If you are a Support Dog owner and would like to nominate a retailer, leisure facility, public premises, park or transport operator that you feel has gone ‘that extra mile’ in providing access for you and your dog; we invite you to get in touch:

You can download a copy of the nomination form  the form by clicking here

Or if you want a form posting to you, please contact:

Angela Gregory, Marketing & Fundraising Officer, Support Dogs, 21 Jessops Riverside, Brightside Lane, Sheffield, S9 2RX


Tel: 0870 609 3476

We’re interested in hearing about general ‘access’ experiences, as well as identifying specific service providers you’d like to nominate for an award.

However, bear in mind the nomination form is being used by clients from all five Assistance Dogs UK charities, so, where possible, we ask you to consider what provisions are in place for hearing impaired people, blind and partially sighted customers, as well as disabled and wheelchair users.

Those service providers you identify as meeting the criteria of being accessible and user friendly to all assistance dog users will be considered for an Assistance Dogs Access Award. If they’re chosen to receive recognition, we will invite you to make the presentation and take part in a publicity photo call.
