WPCS National Welfare Coordinator and Honorary Area Welfare Representatives

The Welfare and Education Committee along with the trustees are working hard to achieve the very challenging strategy we adopted in April this year.

Future Plans for Welfare

The Welfare and Education Committee are looking to put in place a network of Voluntary Area Welfare Representatives, led by a Voluntary National Welfare Coordinator, who will work in liaison with the Societies Honorary Veterinary Surgeon. We are also looking to work with other Breed Societies and organisation to support each other and establish best practice. Appropriate training and support will be given to those selected as Voluntary Area Welfare Representatives. Initially, we are looking to tie the Area Welfare Representatives to Area Association. It may be that demographically some Associations could work together with one person representing them.

Are you a person who has the following qualities:

Is tactful when under pressure

Is approachable and focused

Is non-judgemental

Is Open and Honest

Without the support of you the members, we cannot move forward. Working together, we can hopefully help prevent some of the very sad cases that have haunted the Society over recent years.

There are a lot of newcomers in the Equine world and it is part of our responsibility as an Equine Breed Charity to help, support and inform. We cannot force people to listen or take on board advice and information, we have no legal powers but at least we can try.

A covering letter of interest and resume can be sent to the Education and Welfare Committee.
