Welcome to Northern Ireland Assistance Dogs (NIAD)

Celebrating 5 Years of Diabetes Alert Dogs in N.I. (2011-2016)


About NIAD

We are a volunteer team who are dedicated to improving the quality of life for people who have Diabetes & have lost their hypo-awareness by training dog's to alert them before their blood sugars fall to a dangerous level.

We are a registered company and charity (NI Charity Commission number NIC 100290)

Our dogs are trained in tasks that are tailored to the needs of his/her owner's needs, enabling the person  to lead a more independent life.

We can only accept applications from within N. Ireland for a Diabetes Alert Dog.

We are currently accepting from adults and young persons from the age of 14 (under 18 must have parental consent). For further information please contact us by e-mail using the contact form on this site. If you leave your number we will give you a call as soon as we can.


Community Talks 

We are always pleased to come along and talk to your group about NIAD and the great work that our dogs do. We have visited Brownie & Cub groups to help with their badge work, Diabetes Support groups & local community groups. One of our Diabetes Alert Dogs usually accompanies us.

We don't charge for our talks however a donation/small fundraising event is always welcomed & greatly appreciated.

If you would like to book a NIAD speaker please get in touch using the Contact Us form.
