The Animal Welfare Foundation (AWF) is BVA’s charity and is directed by veterinary and animal welfare professionals. AWF supports the veterinary and animal welfare communities to collectively champion and improve the welfare of animals through independent research, education, and debate.
By hosting thematic and topical research calls AWF tackles difficult or non-populist topics to provide a deeper understanding of pertinent animal welfare issues.
AWF creates positive changes in attitude and knowledge amongst the veterinary profession by providing the only UK cross-species event dedicated entirely to the discussion of animal welfare. AWF is continually investing in future generations of the veterinary community through diverse student engagement activities.
Our Vision: Animals having a better life through improved animal welfare.
Our Mission: To use veterinary knowledge to improve the welfare of animals through science, education and debate.
