This week (1st - 7th June) is Volunteering Week, and today we are focusing on the support of employers. 

Animal Friends are one such employer who support wildlife in Wiltshire through their internal volunteering platform.

How Animal Friends got involved

Driven by a founding passion to improve animal welfare, Animal Friends Insurance not only provides cover to over one million of the nation’s cats, dogs and horses, they also give financial, commercial and volunteering support to animal welfare charities and conservancies worldwide to affect positive change.

Animal Friends have been working with the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust for seven years, donating a total of £27,500 over that time, but this year, they wanted to go further to help ensure the care and protection of the UK’s diverse wildlife.

In April 2021, they announced the arrival of their exciting new internal volunteering platform, Animal Friends Giving Back, that seeks to unite colleagues looking to volunteer with animal welfare or conservation charities in need of a helping hand. As close and long-standing supporters of the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, it was important to them that we were one of the first charities to benefit from this exciting new programme!

Q: Why did you chose to volunteer for Wiltshire Wildlife Trust?

It is incredibly important to us to have a positive impact on the charities, wildlife and communities closer to where our journey all started, in Amesbury, Wiltshire.

The work that the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust do to create living landscapes across Wiltshire by restoring, reconnecting and recreating wildlife habitats for wildlife and people aligns closely with our vision and hopes for creating a better life for every animal.

Q: What are your memorable moments with Wiltshire Wildlife Trust?

We feel very privileged and honoured to be able to support the Trust, helping to make a tangible and meaningful difference to our local area and we’re very excited to see what more we can achieve together in the future through our new volunteering programme.

Thank you Animal Friends!
