BackCare aims to significantly reduce the burden of back pain by providing information and advice to all people and organisations affected by back pain. We fund scientific research into the causes, prevention and management of back pain. Back pain is a major health issue costing the country and the health service billions of pounds every year. Sickness absence currently costs the UK economy £15bn, musculoskeletal disorders are one of the leading causes of sickness absence. We believe that by working together with other organisations, we can help prevent back and neck pain, which has a significant impact on more than 80% of the UK population.

The Barn Owl Trust is a small national charity working to conserve one of the world's most beautiful birds. In recent years Barn Owls have become increasingly rare, the reasons are all man-made. Our small but dedicated team of staff visit sites to erect nestboxes, advise on habitat creation and respond to planning applications. We research the causes of decline and make recommendations for policy changes. We are a grass-roots organisation and pride ourselves on the amount of practical work we do. We can also respond to nationwide enquiries by phone or e-mail. Your donation or legacy to the Trust will really help us make a world of difference.

We are the leading National NGO solely devoted to the conservation of bats and the landscapes on which they rely. Bats are unique and play a vital role in our environment but during the last century bat populations suffered severe declines. We are working to secure the future of bats in our ever changing world by tackling the threats to bats, from persecution to loss of roosts and changing land use. Since 1991 the Bat Conservation Trust has run a diverse range of projects to conserve bat populations. We are part of one of the most successful conservation movements in the world, supported by a network of members, volunteers, academics and professionals. Bats are now protected by law in Europe, and in the UK some species may already be benefiting from the positive effects of conservation, but we have a long way to go to achieve our vision of a world rich in wildlife where bats and people thrive together.
