Please see our Frequently Asked Questions page before submitting an application.

Through its Small Projects and Travel Awards (up to £3,500), UFAW supports a variety of activities for the benefit of animal welfare. Applications may be made for the purchase of equipment, for the organisation of (and, sometimes, to support attendance at) educational meetings, lectures and courses, and for publication, translation or transmission of information on animal welfare and for other small projects in support of UFAW’s objectives.


UFAW is concerned with the welfare of farm, companion, laboratory, and captive wild animals and with free-living wild animals whose welfare is compromised by humans.

If you wish to seek support for a larger project (in excess of £3,500) please see the UFAW Research and Project Awards.
