Our History & What we do

The Raptor Trust was established in 1983 in Norfolk (UK) to treat sick and injured birds of prey and to alert and educate the public for the need to protect and conserve both birds of prey and the habitat in which they live.  The Trust is manned and run by a group of highly dedicated volunteers working from their own homes and as such we have no paid staff.  Volunteers do however receive out of pocket expenses and a modest mileage allowance for assisting in the work that we do.  Over the years the Trust has evolved into a fully registered charity (No. 1036884) which not only assists sick and injured birds but has extended its outreach to include the conservation of birds of prey and their habitats and prey species.  The Trust also has an active educational programme either directly through visits and talks to schools and other youth groups as well as adult organisations, or indirectly at the many shows that the Trust attends each year.
