The people we support and colleagues across Accomplish were recently invited to vote for their preferred charity and PAT was the clear winner. PAT was founded in the UK in 1983 and it aims to enhance health and wellbeing in schools, hospices, care homes, hospitals and other settings through the visits of trusted volunteers with their behaviourally assessed animals.

PAT has over 6,000 volunteers and all pets, though most commonly dogs and cats, undertake valuable work for those in need.

Katie Drakeford, Commercial Director at Accomplish Group, said: “Right across our therapeutic, residential and supported living services, we see regularly how much the people we support, and our colleagues, enjoy interacting with animals and how beneficial it is for their mental health and overall well-being.

“Some use the wonderful services of PAT and so have first-hand experience of just how positive an affect their work can have. That’s why we’re so delighted to be supporting the fantastic work of PAT as our Charity of the Year.

“For the next 12 months the people we support and our colleagues will be holding fundraising events and undertaking challenges to raise as much money as we can. As part of our partnership with the charity we’re looking forward to welcoming PAT volunteers and their pets to our services.

We’re very much looking forward to a year of great fundraising efforts to raise as much as we possibly can, which we know will be going to a great cause.”
