Emergency service workers such as police officers, firefighters and paramedics put their lives on the line to protect the public every day while never asking for anything in return. Many are left traumatised, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety. Now it's time to step up and give something back to a community of emergency service workers who need our care and support.
Help us help
Assistance dogs aid their owners in a multitude of ways, and the benefits of providing an assistance dog to someone living with PTSD are immeasurable. With each dog taking 18 months to train at a cost of $35,000, Code 9 needs your help to subsidise the cost of training more assistance dogs for more people.
An experience like going to the shopping centre, attending sporting events, or going anywhere with a crowd of people is a simple task for many people, but a challenge for those with a diagnosis of PTSD. An assistance dog helps their owner to remain calm and grounded, providing support and improving overall mental health. To see one of these dogs in action is incredible.
The constant companionship these amazing dogs provide sufferers, allows the individual and their family the freedom, security, laughter and quality of life which was previously not possible. The Code 9 Foundation is committed to sponsoring as many of these dogs as possible.
Code 9 are committed to delivering the best possible outcomes for our members suffering from PTSD, with your help we will be able to provide these resources and support.
