Medical Detection Dogs trains dogs to detect the odour of human disease.

Our team of Bio Detection Dogs detect diseases such as Cancer, Parkinson's and COVID-19 and could provide fast, accurate and earlier and non-invasive diagnosis.

We also have Medical Alert Assistance Dogs who warn clients with complex health conditions when they are about it have a potentially life-threatening episode so they can take the necessary action and stay safe and out of hospital.

Our dogs are saving lives now and have the potential to save hundreds of thousands of lives in the future. But we need your help.

We are looking for people go to groups to speak to them about the work the charity does. This role plays a huge part in raising awareness for the charity and you can give as much or as little time to the role as you like. Full training and support given.

We need to raise over £2.5 million a year, which amounts to around £5 per minute. We do this with the help of an amazing team of volunteers and we couldn't continue our work without them. Would you like to join the team?
