I have a long held interest in disability issues and I have framed my academic work (Biological/Social Anthropology and Social Science for Public Health) to explore many aspects of disability. I was also incorporating aspects of incarceration and prison systems into my study. It seems like a natural extension to be working for Mobility Dogs - bringing together both my interest in disability, on a theoretical level and now, working with people whose reality is the lived experience of disability.
The Puppies in Prisons programme at Wiri and Spring Hill is another aspect of Mobility Dogs that I find particularly interesting and challenging. For the Trust it is about getting more dogs out into the community, but it is more than that, we are giving the prisoners the chance to serve the very community they have offended against.
