‘Paws for Support’, by Shaun Bailey
Shaun Bailey has produced a report that calls on the Mayor of London to use cash reserves and corporate sponsorship to set up a scheme that could provide the capital’s most vulnerable Veterans with our assistance dogs.
Assembly Member Bailey believes the Mayor has an opportunity to bridge the funding gap at no expense to the taxpayer to provide some of our veterans with life-changing support.
London Assembly Member Shaun Bailey said:
“We owe it to our armed forces heroes to give them the right help and support when they are discharged from the armed forces and this is a simple and effective way of delivering that.
“PTSD is a devastating mental illness that can ruin the lives of people who have put themselves in harm’s way for our country.
“The Mayor, through existing cash reserves and his ability to attract corporate sponsorship, has the power to provide life-changing help for those most in need.
“I strongly believe we should be doing all we can to get the lives of suffering armed forces veterans back on track and I think Londoners would love to see this taken forward.”
