Sally Whitney is an academic researcher with a specialist interest in the lives of disabled young people and in particular the impact of faith in their lives and what animals mean to them both more generally and with regard to assistance animals. Using methods of co-production, Sally works and writes (both academically and for wider audiences) as a Co-researcher in the  ESRC Living life to the fullest project, as well as with YEUK and Scope. She has consequently led the Canine Care project in collaboration with Canine Partners, who partnered her with her own assistance dog Ethan. Both Ethan and Sally’s strong faith have helped her navigate her chronic, complex illnesses and spur her passion to make the most of every situation.
