When you walk, you help people like Jocelyne…
“My hearing dog Kennedy does so much more than alert me to sounds. He gives me great confidence and independence, not only at home but also out and about, and he brings me so much happiness. He truly is a life-changer!”
– Jocelyne and Kennedy
Please take part in the Great British Dog Walk and help more deaf people like Jocelyne to leave loneliness behind.
"The Great British Dog Walk is a fantastic opportunity to get yourself or your dog sponsored to raise vital funds to help deaf people leave loneliness behind." - Rachel Riley, TV presenter
