Paws for Progress


Paws for Progress CIC is a small organisation dedicated to enhancing the well-being of people and animals by promoting and supporting, by whatever means, positive and effective interactions between them.

Based in central Scotland, Paws for Progress works with young people and adults most in need of support across a range of settings, including in prisons, schools and the wider community. We provide pioneering dog training programmes which benefit the dogs and the people taking part in equal measures.

Our human animal interaction services are all evidence based, so we fully understand the positive impact of our work. However, running high quality projects is very resource intensive and we rely heavily on the generosity of grant funders to sustain our work. The Cross Trust has been incredibly supportive of our work, and we are very grateful.
