Getting involved

All our work is carried out voluntarily but in order to function well, rely upon extra help, especially at busy times.

We need assistance with fundraising and awareness events, foster care and ultimately we would like to train new carers so we can expand our work and rescue even more hedgehogs.

If you have time to spare, you live locally and are interested in getting involved in our work, contact us for more details.
