HEDGEHOG HELPLINE 

Hedgehog Helpline operates in South East Wales only. During the financial year we received 1225 hedgehogs . In addition we received in excess of 3500 calls about other hedgehogs. We attended 37 events/venues to give talks etc about our work, how to help hedgehogs in their natural surroundings, why they are declining and how to help if one is found in need.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been very successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • This charity is based in an area of high deprivation

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Income has been volatile recently but spending has been maintained
