Prevention through Education

Our free Prevention through Education programme for Scottish primary schools reaches more than 245,000 children every year.

We passionately believe our programme will have a huge and positive impact on animal welfare in Scotland for generations to come.

The results have been immediate, with fewer children being involved in animal cruelty.
