The British Hen Welfare Trust is the UK's leading hen welfare charity

Since we were founded in 2005, we’ve helped a huge number of hens – rehoming over 0 of them to new owners and championing the welfare of countless others.
The British Hen Welfare Trust is a national charity that rehomes commercial laying hens, educates the public about how they can make a difference to hen welfare, and encourages support for the British egg industry. Our ultimate aim is to see consumers and food manufacturers buying only UK produced free-range eggs, resulting in a strong British egg industry where all commercial laying hens enjoy a good quality life.
