A major need was to be able to make training videos, so that we could continue working with our Families and Schools during this period to give both the Assistance Dogs under training and the families dealing with Autism, Down’s Syndrome and Physical Disablement the best support we could, given the unusual circumstances. However, these videos will also add value for the future and will be part of our ongoing training programme.

“Talbot Village Trust was established over 150 years ago by the Talbot sisters, Georgina and Mary Anne Talbot. Inspired by the poverty of the area at the time, Georgina purchased land to provide farming for employment and housing, and a school for use by local people. Thanks to the sisters’ philanthropic approach and a careful investment programme, the Trust is now one of Dorset’s principal benefactors, donating millions of pounds of crucial financial support back into the local community. In 2018 and 2019, Talbot Village Trust made grants of over £2 million to organisations across Christchurch, Bournemouth, Poole, East Dorset and the Isle of Purbeck, and the COVID-19 Support Fund made 1.1m of grants to help local organisations through the coronavirus crisis.”
