About the Organisation

Pets As Therapy is a national charity founded in 1983 by Lesley Scott-Ordish. We enhance health and well-being in the community through the visits of trusted volunteers with their behaviourally assessed animals. We provide a visiting service in hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes, special needs schools and a variety of other venues all across the UK.

Our therapeutic visits:
– Enhance lives in our communities by providing companionship and friendship and helps to tackle loneliness
– Improve the lives of people suffering from debilitating mental and physical heath conditions and illnesses such as Autism, Dementia and Stroke by including animal assisted interventions as part of a holistic approach to treatment
– Improve literacy in children by developing their confidence, interest and enjoyment in reading through our read2dogs scheme
