Hi Christina

Lovely to hear that you’re interested. There are 2 routes. You could either do a course with a wildlife sanctuary – Vale Wildlife hospital run one for example. Then you could register with the BHPS or one of the other wildlife charities as a carer.
Alternatively you could find you nearest carer and ask then if they could take you on as a helper so you could learn and help them.

Looking after sick/injured hogs is constant work and expense so it’s an idea to at least talk to your nearest carer to get an idea of what is involved before finding you’ve signed up for more than you bargained for

I hope you do proceed as obviously the more carers out there the more can be helped, so I wish you the best
