How We Are Funded

The British Hen Welfare Trust is registered as a charity (No. 1147356) with the Charity Commission.
We have a small team of staff at Hen Central in Devon and our nationwide rehoming operations are carried out through our network of wonderful volunteers. We are constantly on the lookout for new and different ways to raise funds so that we can save more hens from slaughter and to carry on developing new programmes to help educate, improve welfare and connect veterinary practices with hen keepers.

We are fortunate enough to be funded in many ways, including:

Our volunteers are one of the most vital parts of the charity, generously donating their time and energy. If you would like to be involved in our work, there are lots of ways your help can really make a difference and we would love to hear from you. Fill out our volunteer form here.

Other ways that you can support the BHWT:

As well as individual supporters, we also work with a number of companies who advertise in our publications, give us donations, sponsor publications or events, or give us gifts in kind.
A number of charitable trusts and foundations also support our work and have made a huge difference to what we have been able to achieve. They include organisations like:

We are members of the Institute of Fundraising, and of the Fundraising Regulator.

We publish an annual report and accounts, which can be downloaded via the Charity Commission site.

Thank you to all our supporters and donors – we couldn’t help hens without you!
