RSPCA/UFAW Rodent Welfare Meeting 2021  

Tuesday 19th October, online

This year's meeting comprises three sessions. The first will take you through a new resource for animal technologists on evaluating environmental enrichment, produced by the NC3Rs with input from the RSPCA and Institute of Animal Technology. The second session focuses on the link between better welfare and better science, and how animal technologists can help facilitate both. The third will be an update from the Home Office Animals in Science Regulation Unit (ASRU) on their ongoing Change Programme, with an opportunity to discuss how your establishment is adapting to this.

Registration is now closed.

Please click below to register for the meeting. To register you will need to provide your name, email address and institutional affiliation (if relevant). Information you share during registration for this meeting will be shared with UFAW and the RSPCA (and also with our Webinar software provider – GoToWebinar).

We want to provide a secure forum, allowing free discussion between participants, so registration will be restricted to those who are directly or indirectly involved with laboratory rodent care and use.

This meeting is free to attend, but we would very much appreciate your support in the form of a donation to allow us to continue to offer these meetings. Both charities rely on donations to carry out their work.

All donations will be divided equally between the two organisers of the conference – The Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (Registered Charity No 207996) and The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Registered charity no 219099) .

Should you wish to donate individually to either charity please visit our websites:




Thank you, your support is greatly appreciated.
