A Community Lottery Funded project summed up as:
Life skills workshops, run by people, hosted by dogs.
Basically, a number of wonderful organisations and people had offered to do short workshops on useful topics e.g. budgeting, working rights, mental health in the workplace etc.
But the twist is, that the whole time we were surrounded by the very good dogs at a fantastic dog sitting service called Vippies.
This series of workshops was designed for people who had potentially spent time socially isolated and wanted a nice way to get back into the swing of being around people or for people who just generally lacked social confidence and wanted to work on this in a safe environment, surrounded by dogs whilst learning multiple useful life skills.
The groups were no bigger than 15 young people at a time.
