Paws & Pause is a Dog Day Care Centre who value the positive affect dogs can have on a person's well being. We are passionate about empowering people, who have been out of work due to mental health or substance use issues, by forming bonds with the dogs and relationships with the team.
As a social enterprise we are committed to putting our profits into our Volunteer Programme and training trainees. We offer 6 month placements where we support the trainee through regular 1:1s to develop their confidence and skills in order to feel employment ready.
We are looking to form relationships with organisations who support mental health, awareness around substance use issues and paths into employment, in order to:
- Establish a collaborative approach to supporting individuals in a person centred approach
- Develop our Volunteer Programme and create more opportunities for those facing barriers into employment
- Promote the conversation around mental health and campaign for a focus on 'feeling employment ready' as an alternative to employment focused programmes.
If you work with clients who fit our criteria, are an organisation with similar ethos or just someone who has passion and a project, then get in touch. We are growing and are looking for the right people to grow with!
