With you by our side, we never give up
This is radical, important, grown up stuff, effected quietly by people who are in the fight for the long term.
One of the best ways to protect farm animals is to make factory farm practices illegal. You’ve helped win historic new laws that prevent cruelty to farm animals.
Together we tackled the appalling conﬁnement of calves in veal crates where playful animals spend their miserable, 14-week lives conﬁned in a crate just two feet wide and can’t even turn around.
In these horrendous wire cages, each hen has standing-space smaller than an A4 sheet of paper and can’t even spread her wings.
Sow stalls are narrow metal cages, conﬁning pregnant pigs behind bars. You've helped trigger a global movement away from sow stalls.
Thanks to you, millions of farm animals have better lives every year. And we’re not done yet. Together, we will campaign to outlaw all cages and cruel farming worldwide.
In the next few years, the UK must draft new, independent animal welfare legislation. With your support we will seize the opportunity of Brexit to ﬁght for stronger welfare laws, and protect British farm animals from any back-sliding into further cruelty. With your help, we will relentlessly push for political compassion around the world, until all farm animals are reared humanely.
You think big
The fastest way to make the biggest difference to the greatest number of farm animals is by harnessing the power of big business. Thanks to you, our specialist Food Business team works relentlessly to persuade global food giants to transform millions of animals’ lives.
Our aim is to bring about fresh thinking and a new approach to the way food is produced. With your support, we will challenge and persuade the world’s most powerful and inﬂuential food companies to only use higher-welfare milk, meat and eggs across their entire product ranges.
Investigations are the backbone of Compassion’s work.
With your support, our hard-hitting investigations are relentless in exposing the cruelty and suffering that underpins intensive farming.
In 2013, we visited Irish pig farms and ﬁlmed the horrors we found: pigs living ankle deep in excrement, open wounds infested with ﬂies, emaciated animals left in corridors to die. Our hard- hitting ﬁlm was sent to politicians, demanding they force Ireland – and other countries who ﬂout the law – to meet their animal welfare obligations.
Few people realised rabbits are farmed in their millions across Europe. Our team revealed the true story. Countless animals in tiny wire cages, stacked in sheds piled with excrement. We’re using this evidence to ﬁght for new legislation to protect these ‘invisible’, vulnerable creatures.
We uncover hard evidence that enables us to ﬁght for farm animal protection – and to hold to account those who break the law. With you by our side, we never stop protecting farm animals who need us.
I deal with lots of NGOs and many of them are fine organisations, but I can honestly say that Compassion in World Farming is probably the finest. It isn’t just that their cause is just. They espouse it with such calmness and reason.

Now their future is in your hands
Factory farming is by far the biggest cause of animal cruelty on the planet. With you beside us, we will work tirelessly to see factory farming replaced with a humane and sustainable food system.
Imagine the profound changes we can achieve for farm animals as we continue to work together.
We stand at a crossroads. If we take the wrong turn, factory farming will bring further damage, waste and animal suffering.
But, thanks to your achievements so far, our generation has the power to choose a different direction. One that leads to a better, healthier legacy for farm animals, our children and our children’s children. Their future is in your hands. Please come with us.
We are committed to ﬁnancial transparency and to using your gifts wisely to advance the wellbeing of animals across the world.
This information is intended to give an overview of the charity’s allocation of resources. Our detailed, audited accounts are available on request.
Almost half of all our work is only possible thanks to gifts people make in their Wills. This page is dedicated to the memory of all the wonderful supporters who have sadly passed away and kindly left a gift in their Will. Their legacy is our relentless work to end factory farming and stop farm animal cruelty, wherever it exists.
Together, we'll make cruelty history
For 50 years, amazing, determined supporters like you have been speaking out for frightened, hurt and suffering farm animals who have no voices to speak for themselves.
Together, we have thrown open cages, taken away tethers and let fresh air and sunlight ﬂood in for millions of animals. Their lives are so much better because of you, each year.
We’re not ﬁnished yet. As long as there is a single farm animal in a factory farm, we will be there, doing everything in our power to help them.
With you, we are relentless.
With you, we will end cruel factory farming once and for all.
CIWF constantly battles to improve the lives of farm animals everywhere. They keep going no matter what, and for that I truly thank them and am glad I joined CIWF that day years ago.
Mrs Christine A Manders, Compassion supporter
Factory farming is the biggest cause of animal pain and suffering on the planet. It harms our health. It damages the environment. It is responsible for unparalleled food waste. By gaining recognition of the true cost of this appalling system, together we will achieve the biggest impact, the greatest change. Together we’ll make cruelty history.

All too often, the system treats animals as commodities to be traded like sacks of potatoes. When seen as a mere product, farm animals suffer horrible cruelties, like being shipped thousands of miles without food or rest.
Peter Roberts believed passionately that each farm animal is an individual with physical and emotional needs. In 1987 he decided to tackle the ‘impossible’: demanding a new law that recognises farm animals as sentient beings.
His peers called him naive but Peter refused to give up, instead sparking a massive campaign across Europe. In 1991 Compassion presented a paper petition with one million names, in 36 boxes, to the president of the European Parliament.
Our determination paid off. In 1997, for the ﬁrst time in history, animals were legally recognised as sentient beings. This historic agreement now underpins and paves the way for all future will check/add tail once I have downloads hi res improvements to farm animal welfare in Europe.
