The Farm Animal Welfare Advisory Council (FAWAC) was established in February 2002 on a non-statutory basis. It has been instrumental in promoting animal welfare in a practical way and providing a forum for different interest groups to meet, exchange views and reach consensus on the broad mandate of challenges facing farm animal welfare.

 

Main Functions of the Farm Animal Welfare Advisory Council:

  • Publish reports and opinions advising the Minister on specific topics, together with formal meetings with relevant officials
  • Provide a forum for different interest groups to meet, exchange divergent views and reach consensus on the broad mandate of challenges facing farm animal welfare
  • Building relationships, all members have a common purpose and share the view that animal welfare is an issue of very high importance

 

Our members are drawn from several representative groups with a variety of perspectives on animal welfare.
