About this group
Being around a dog can make people feel more confident, help them relax and boost their wellbeing. Organisations that take dogs into schools or care homes provide a valuable service that can improve lives.
Whether they are therapy dogs or pets that are happy to meet strangers, individuals or businesses providing these services may have to meet certain regulations. Your local authority should be able to provide a full list.
Schools, retirement and nursing homes may require you to have liability insurance, which can cover expensive compensation and legal costs in the event an animal injures someone or causes damage.
