31 May 2024

We are thrilled to announce an exciting new chapter for Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland (AADI) as we welcome Munster and Ireland rugby stars Calvin Nash, Cian Hurley, and Jack Daly as our brand ambassadors. This partnership is set to amplify our efforts in raising awareness and support for the invaluable work we do, providing highly trained assistance dogs to families of children with autism.

The Power of Sports and Support
At AADI, we understand the profound impact that community and support can have on the lives of autistic children and their families. With Calvin Nash, Cian Hurley, and Jack Daly on board, we are confident that we can reach even greater heights in our mission. Their involvement is not just a testament to their generosity but also an inspiring example of how sports and community can come together to make a significant difference.

David McCarthy on the New Partnership
David McCarthy, Head of Fundraising and Communications, shared his excitement
about this collaboration:
“We are incredibly grateful to have Calvin, Cian, and Jack join us as brand ambassadors. Their support will be invaluable in raising awareness about the life-changing impact our assistance dogs have on children with autism and their families. This collaboration will help us reach new audiences and generate the necessary funds to continue our vital work.”

Why Calvin Nash Supports AADI
Calvin Nash, one of our new ambassadors, expressed his heartfelt reasons for supporting

"I’ve seen firsthand how an assistance dog can transform the lives of children with autism and their families. The work that AADI does is truly inspiring, and I’m honoured to be able to support such a worthy cause. I look forward to using my platform to help raise awareness and encourage others to get involved."
The Difference We Make
Our assistance dogs are not just pets; they are highly trained companions that provide safety, independence, and companionship to autistic children. These dogs significantly improve the quality of life for both the children and their families, offering a sense of security and enhancing their ability to engage with the world around them.

Join Us in Our Mission
With the backing of Calvin, Cian, and Jack, we are more energised than ever to continue our mission and extend our reach. We invite our supporters and the wider community to join us in this journey.
Whether it’s through donations, volunteering, or spreading the word, your support is crucial.

Together, We Can Make a Difference
We are excited about the possibilities this new partnership brings and look forward to the positive impact it will have on our mission. Stay tuned for more updates and events as we work alongside Calvin Nash, Cian Hurley, and Jack Daly to create a brighter future for families of children with autism.
