Charity of The Year 2016/2017 – The Humane Education Society

Humane Blue background

The Society was established in Manchester in 1927. A move to Wilmslow in the late sixties enabled the creation of the Society’s own Animal Sanctuary.

The founding members were passionate about helping people, especially the young and disadvantaged, develop  a compassionate character by a deeper understanding and compassion for animals, which would in turn benefit the whole of society.

The Early Days

In the early days the Society rescued pit ponies from the mines of Lancashire but today the Society pursues its original aim by providing care for many different animals. Those that come to the Sanctuary are unwanted, abandoned, or homeless. Cats, rabbits, pigs, hens, horses, ponies, donkeys and other animals find peace and security with us. Many, particularly cats and rabbits, are found new homes but some become permanent residents and for them the Sanctuary will be their home for the rest of their lives. Our small team of staff who look after the animals are helped by volunteers who give their time to help us.

Future Plans

The Sanctuary requires constant work to comply with increasing animal welfare and visitor safety standards. The Society has plans in place for the future and with sufficient finance will be helping animals and promoting humane principles for many years to come.


The Society has worked with a large number of educational organisations in the Manchester and Cheshire areas over the years, most recently, a project with Castle Hill High School, Stockport.
