The Animal Welfare Foundation has announced up to five grants for desk-based research on priority animal welfare issues in the UK

The Animal Welfare Foundation (AWF) has announced new grants for desk-based animal welfare research projects to help support important research at a time when ongoing Covid-19 social distancing measures have made field work difficult.

The vet-led charity is offering as many as five grants of up to £10,000 each, with the flexibility for funding to be extended up to £30,000 for one exceptional proposal. The grants will support research projects that focus on priority animal welfare issues in the UK, as identified by a seminal 2019 Delphi study funded by AWF, and will be tenable for up to six months.

Examples of projects that would be welcomed by the AWF include scoping exercises to assess delayed euthanasia in farm animals, dogs or cats, and the validity, reliability and impact of quality of life assessment tools for companion animalsOther research proposals of interest could relate to:

AWF Chair of Trustees Chris Laurence said:

“Funding scientific research to find practical solutions to animal welfare issues has always been at the heart of AWF’s work, and we are committed to ensuring that it remains high on the agenda even during the ongoing pandemic.

“Covid-19 has meant that we need to re-think our approach, as carrying out field work whilst social distancing measures are in place is not feasible. That’s why we’ve decided to offer funding for short, desk-based research projects that can be safely carried out during this time.

“I’d encourage all researchers with an interest in animal welfare to apply for this generous grant.”

The results from the research must be appropriate for publishing in a peer-reviewed, open-access journal. Successful applicants will also get the chance to present their work to the veterinary and animal welfare communities at the annual AWF Discussion Forum and at other key veterinary events.

The deadline for completing the grant application is 12 July 2020. More information on project criteria and how to apply can be viewed on the AWF website.

Veterinarians it is not your job to be everything to everyone!

Oh I am learning this lesson again right now …

Who you are in your heart is perfect.

You are not others and they are not you.

If you take it upon yourself to keep learning and show up as a slightly better version of you each day then you are doing all that can be reasonably expected.

You are enough.

You are human and your first priority is to look after you. From this point of self-care and balance you can do what you can to help and serve others.

You are not in anyone else’s lane nor are they in yours – thus it is interesting to see what they are doing but the only comparison that truly counts is how you are showing up today compared to how you showed up yesterday.

The rest of comparison is wasted energy as it fuels fleeting emotions that you don’t want to have behaviours emerge from.

And P.S you are not your emotions or your behaviours but you are 💯 responsible for them.
