Animal welfare education, striving for a kinder nation.

Proud to be working with schools to promote kindness, care and compassion.

Kindness, care and compassion are qualities that we should all encourage throughout our community.

Here at Radcliffe Animal Centre we aim to help children understand how important it is to show kindness, care and compassion towards animals as well as each other.

Working with rescued animals we use our circle of compassion to explain to children how we help animals recover from cruelty and neglect and how we can prevent this happening to more animals.

Our Circle of Compassion promotes learning to be kind, teaching people how to care for animals properly and sharing our respect and compassion for all living things.

Our aim is to keep this message circling round and round our community.
