  1. Do you use animal healers to help aid rehabilitation?

  2. I am a UKCP registed counsellor and working at the College of West Anglia as a learner support officer of animal care students. I am really interested in rehabilitation courses. Could you please let me know where I can find the information of the courses? Many thanks.

  3. I'm curently on an animal management course in the South West of England. I would love to take part in the rehabilitation courses but Stapeley Grange would be too far for me to travel. Would be awesome if some courses could be completed in my area!

  4. I would like to have a Wildlife Rehabilitation Course available to attend here in the North of England. Due to the wildlife rescue and rehabilitation I currently provide, it's difficult for me to be away from home eg. overnight stays. A venue I could travel to each day would be of benefit to me.

  5. Where would I find a more recent newsletter? The most recent one I can find on here is from summer 2011!

  7. I would like to see a guide sort of thing to help people plan out how they can become a rehabilitator or a better one and where you can go for experiance to rehabilitate without a centre as there is no centre near me and I can not drive! Also what about online courses i'm sure many people would find that helpfull

  8. Whilst a forum could be useful it would be a lot less hassle from the BWRC point of view to have a Facebook page. Fora are fine until the spammers find them and than it becomes a full time job maintaining everything.

  9. I would love to see the forum up and running again. With the symposium happening just once a year, it would be fantastic to have the means to contact others working in the field and share ideas /knowledge all year round. There are always new developments, issues to be discussed and questions to be asked/answered, so I feel that this would be a valuable resource. It would also be interesting/useful to have an online database for rehabbers to be able to input their yearly casualty statistics in order to get an idea of how many animals are being treated/the reason for admittance/the outcome throughout Britain.

  10. A comprehensive and regularly updated list of rehabilitators (which is sorted by country/region/county and also easily searchable by data fields, such as nearest town, or species, etc) should perhaps be considered a priority ... for most folks, getting assistance with any wildlife casualty usually begins with trying to find someone close enough.

    Maybe you could begin by adding us to the existing (somewhat sparse) Scotland listing?

  11. What about having a forum so rehabbers could discuss and share information.

  12. The joining facility is a good idea. It's also great for rehabilitators to offer to share information like this.

  13. West Yorkshire Bat Hospital has developed a form for registering bats coming into care. It may not be applicable to all but rehabbers are welcome to use it as a reference point for developing their own. It can be found in the Bat Care News Bat Rescue Manual as a photocopy master or contact me at batcarenews@phonecoop.coop.
    Can I suggest that the website also has details for becoming a member?

We want to hear your ideas and suggestions
for this website.
What information would you like to see on it?
How can the BWRC help wildlife rehabilitation?

If you have any suggestions, please let us know
by emailing us at info@bwrc.org.uk or leave a
comment in the box on the right.

We have received the following suggestion so far:

'What would be really useful is a collection of forms for centres to download and use. Especially things like volunteer agreements/disclaimers. Health & Safety proformas etc. Most of us need them and just don't have the time to make them up and get them checked.'

All suggestions will be looked at by the Committee and
the website will be updated and improved over the next
few months so please get involved and help us to help
you and the UK's wildlife.
