Getting involved in a local group is a fantastic way to discover like-minded people in your community. Our local groups network really is a fantastic driving force for change, and its members have great fun too! Joining a local group is an opportunity to get active with other supporters who really care.

Local groups are an essential part of our fundraising and awareness raising work. From street collections to bake sales, sponsored events to community fairs, spreading the word of Compassion has never been more exciting.

Being part of this community is a great way to help end the suffering of farmed animals in the UK and worldwide, and here at Compassion we are committed to helping you do this.

From large groups to smaller teams, local groups share our vision of a world where farm animals are treated with compassion and respect and the cruel practices of factory farming come to an end.

No group in your area? Why not start one?

Whether you are an experienced fundraiser or you have never done anything like this before, we will support you and your group every step of the way!

The reason we decided to start forming local groups was to create a support structure for our volunteers. Bringing people together in local areas helps form tight knit support groups and forges relations with like-minded people in local communities.

Running a local group involves as much or as little as you would like it to. We do not ask for specific time commitments and are keen for you to support us in whatever way you like.

If you have the passion, enthusiasm and commitment to help us make change for farm animals please contact our Supporter Engagement Team and kick start the movement in your area.

You may already be part of a group, in which case please let us know the details and we can direct future supporters your way should they wish to get actively involved.
