“The British Hen Welfare Trust is a charity set up to educate the public about laying hen welfare. We are now in our 11th year.
Best known for our re-homing initiative, we have found pet homes for over 547,000 commercial laying hens destined for slaughter since being established in 2005. Jane Howorth, the Trust’s Founder, was moved by a Panorama documentary in 1977 which illustrated the stark conditions inside battery cages, and the remit from the outset was to be pragmatic in educating consumers whilst supporting the British egg industry.
By 2008 the charity had already helped nearly 62,000 hens and after appearing with Jamie Oliver on Jamie’s Fowl Dinners, the Channel 4 programme about the chicken industry, there was a huge surge in interest. The national network of volunteers grew rapidly and the number of hens being adopted continued to grow rapidly in tandem.”
