Statement from HSA CEO Huw Golledge

19 March 2020

In these extraordinary times the HSA will be trying our best to continue supporting the welfare of animals during marketing, transport and at the time of slaughter. We are confident that we can continue our activities in these difficult times.

Many of our staff are working from home but will be available to provide animal welfare advice and assistance as well as guidance on our research funding and other activities.

We have cancelled all our face-to face meetings and activities but if you need to speak to us we will be more than happy to arrange a virtual meeting.  

We understand that some of our grant recipients will experience problems carrying out the research and other activities which we support, and we are keen to help you overcome these issues. If your work is impacted by Covid-19 please feel free to contact us to discuss how we can help. We can offer no-cost extensions to grants in many cases and will consider any other adjustments which may help HSA-supported activities to continue.

We will continue to process grant applications as usual.

For further updates and news please follow us on twitter: @HSAofficial.

We wish all of you the very best at this difficult time. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions. You can contact us on 01582 831 919 or at .

Best wishes,
