Wellbeing Support Dogs (WSD)

We are so beyond excited to have been chosen by Lancashire Fire and Rescue service to be a part in their new incredible Wellbeing Support Dog Scheme.🐶🐾
Wellbeing Support Dogs (WSD) are an in-house facility provided by colleagues, for colleagues. Staff have undergone a selection process, along with their pet dog, to undertake peer support and dog handling training to provide informal support to colleagues. 😍
The aim of a WSD visit is to improve wellbeing, build self-esteem/confidence, help someone open up about their feelings and signpost.
The WSD Handlers have received mental wellbeing information to help them share their experiences, provide emotional support and facilitate social interactions in an informal peer to peer situation they are not medically trained and are not counsellors or therapists.💜
