Teaching about nature and animals

Our Education and Community Engagement Hubs run animal welfare education programmes for vulnerable children, young people and families.

We know from research that one of the main reasons people neglect animals is because they don’t know how to take care of them properly. So our hubs team up with organisations like the police and NHS mental health to help communities understand that animals have feelings and needs, and ultimately, prevent animal cruelty and neglect.
