The charity was set up after the tragic death of Caroline Stuttle, in April 2002, in Bundaburg, Australia, whilst backpacking in her gap year. The foundation was formed by Marjorie Marks-Stuttle, her son Richard and her husband David Marks. The aim of the foundation is, to raise the awareness of the importance of personal safety, by recognising and prioritising lifes values. The foundation is currently working with the education sector, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Safer York Partnership, The Suzy Lamplugh Trust, BBC Radio York, other trusts/charities and organisations, to disseminate this message and to offer direction towards the relevant funding, provisions and information that is currently available to support young travellers. The foundation also assists back-packers in Australia if they find themselves in distress or unfortunate circumstances. For further information, please contact the foundation on the details above.
Cat Chat is a web-based charity, sourcing loving, permanent homes for over 8,000 rescued cats every year from rescue centres and rehoming groups across the UK and Ireland. Our on-line cat homing services are given free of charge to all kinds of rescue organisations, large and small. We also help vets practices to find homes for cats left in their care. We are particularly committed to finding homes for the harder-to-home cats, such as older cats, nervous cats, FIV positive cats, and cats who have been in care too long. Shelters often refer to us as their ‘Rehoming Lifeline'. To find out more, to support us or to adopt a rescue cat, please visit our website: www.catchat.org, thank you.
