League Against Cruel Sports

We work to change attitudes and behaviour through education, fact-based videos, scientific reports and public engagement events.

This is an exciting time for the League. Our Votes for Vinny campaign struck a chord with the public and made sure that Fox Hunting was a key issue of the general election campaign.

You will be an inspiring, engaging and credible spokesperson for the League, mobilising League members and supporters to maximise impact on policy-makers and media.
