Dr Hadwen Trust Charity Profile
The Dr Hadwen Trust is the UK's leading medical research charity funding exclusively non-animal techniques to replace animal experiments, benefiting humans and animals.Our mission is to play a leading role in funding, advancing and developing widespread support for non-animal replacement research and so make a major, practical contribution to the cessation of animal experiments.
We believe that excellence in medical research can and should be pursued without animal experiments because they are morally unjustified and scientifically unsatisfactory. We are driven by a respect and compassion for all life, animal and human alike, and strive to always be professional, truthful, effective and innovative.
Dr Hadwen Trust Volunteer Information
The Dr Hadwen Trust is always looking for enthusiastic and committed local volunteers to help out in our Hitchin-based office. General office volunteers can help out with a variety of tasks including dealing with correspondence, data inputting, stuffing envelopes, and filing.
Generally our volunteers are based in our friendly town-centre office, but if you live locally and would like to do envelope stuffing from the comfort of your own home, this can also be arranged. No specific experience is required, as training will be provided. Hours to suit. Warm welcome guaranteed! In return for your valuable help, we will reimburse your travel expenses and give a massive 20% discount on mail-order items to those of you who are unwaged.
Dr Hadwen Trust Donation Information
Your donation will be put to work to help our research to replace animal experiments. This currently includes projects to replace monkeys, dogs, rabbits, mice, cats and other animals that are still used in laboratory experiments. Over 2.5 million animals are used every year in the UK in procedures that have the potential to cause pain, suffering, distress or lasting harm, and all will be killed or reused.
