How to become a volunteer

If you have spare time on your hands and are able to commit to volunteering on a fairly regular basis, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Our volunteers make a huge difference to the work we are able to undertake and the number of hens re-homed.

Below is a list of our volunteering areas. Click on each one to find out more and to fill out an application form. If you would like to volunteer in more than one area you only need to fill out one form.

Learning Volunteer

The British Hen Welfare Trust is looking for volunteers to support our learning programme for schools and other educational and care settings. Learning volunteer will lead workshops to help primary school pupils (aged 4 – 11) explore egg production and animal welfare topics and gain the knowledge and skills to make food choices that are healthy for both themselves and for farmed animals.

Fundraising Volunteer

We are always on the look out for more volunteers to attend shows or to give talks and spread the word about our feathered friends. If you’re interested click above for more information and fill out the form at the bottom of the page.

Re-homing Volunteer

We’re always keen to hear from people eager to get hands on with our hens! We are regularly in need of drivers, administrators, poorly hen carers, sites hosts and more across the country.
