Big Idea

Barking Benefits

Barking Benefits

Kingsmeadow Community School


A service which uses dogs as therapists to help with mental health in young people.

"Our big idea could revolutionise the way mental health consultations work in the NHS for young children by making them more comfortable talking to professionals in the service. It could also benefit the dogs as they will become trained as service dogs. We are aiming to be ‘Barking For a Better Future.’"


The Programme Coordinator supporting this team with their Big Idea is: Claire Fitton.
