Brainy Dogs is a unique project.
Rescue dogs from Felixstowe Blue Cross are trained by prisoners to become companion dogs to people with a brain injury or neurological condition.
After a brain injury or neurological condition people can experience a personality change which may result in them losing friends and family. The dogs fill the gap that this leaves.
