COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR DISABILITY –
Hypo Hounds is an owner-based assistance dog charity that saves lives, especially children’s lives, and transforms the lives of families with Brittle Type 1 Diabetes sufferers. Hypo Hounds assists those living with Brittle Type 1 Diabetes to train their own dogs to be able to provide supportive care and assistance, thus improving the quality of life of the sufferer. Already established in the South East, a team of Home Office qualified and approved scent detection trainers provide sufferers with the knowledge to train their dogs using a unique method. Hypo Hounds receives no government funding and relies solely on public donations and offers of sponsorship. There is no other Assistance Dog Charity in the UK offering the services that they do. This remarkable organisation has over 200 years of scent detection training experience at their disposal, saving the lives of Type 1 Diabetic children one sniff at a time.
