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.
Our activities here at Radcliffe Animal Centre are being developed to support animal welfare education and literacy across Nottinghamshire.
Children feel much more at ease reading to rabbits and other animals. There is a purpose to their reading other than being judged on how well they are doing.

Animal welfare explored through poetry, drama and music.At Radcliffe Animal Centre we are working with schools and teachers.
Together we can get them to think about using poetry, drama and music to explore issues around animal cruelty.
More on Literacy Support
In affiliation with Nottingham University Vet School, we aim to provide final year graduates with valuable experience of shelter medicine.
This also ensures that our centre has access to highly qualified vets when treating our animals that have suffered cruelty and neglect.

Did you know that we are able to come out to your workplace, college or school?
This is a great way of meeting some of our animals and learn more about our work.
We believe discussions on animal welfare are beneficial to both children, animals and our community as a whole, supporting learning and encouraging empathy.
Studies show that time with animals in your work or study place helps to alleviate stress, boost creativity and productivity.
