Volunteer Driver Dan

Are you a hen lover with spare time on your hands? If you answered “yes”, then we’d love to hear from you.

Volunteering with us is incredibly rewarding, and there are many ways you can help. Whether you’re hands on with hens, helping us fundraise, or teaching the younger generation about our feathered friends, you’ll be making an invaluable contribution to the BHWT and helping save even more lives.

There are three main areas in which we require volunteers: poorly hen carers, site hosts and hen collection drivers.

We always love to hear from people passionate about helping hens, so please apply as there may be lots of other ways you can help!

Rehoming volunteer

The British Hen Welfare Trust currently has almost 1,000 volunteers across the country, but we always need more! There are many different ways you can help, from hosting a rehoming site for us to dealing with admin on the day.
Rehoming days are often long and tiring and take place roughly every four to six weeks, but my goodness are they rewarding. You’ll most likely end up tired, but you’ll know you’ve helped send hundreds if not thousands of hens on their way to a free-range retirement.
We want to hear from volunteers from all parts of the country. So, whether you’ve got a spare stable and could host a rehoming day or a van which could help transport hens to their new homes, we’d love to hear from you.

If you are applying to become a rehoming volunteer, we are currently accepting applications, but may not be able to immediately place you within one of our rehoming teams, as many already have waiting lists.

Volunteer opportunities

Thinking of helping out and becoming a volunteer? We could not do the work we do without the amazing efforts, dedication and hard work of our volunteer teams throughout the country. They are truly the backbone of the organisation and we are forever grateful for their efforts helping to save hens from slaughter.

Below you can learn about the various roles we have and hear from other volunteers about their experiences helping us out on a rehoming day.

If you’ve any questions please get in touch via email to volunteer@bhwt.co.uk
