From time to time; we run ‘Introduction to Hedgehogs’ courses. 

Please keep an eye on this page; for further details. 

Please note we will not be running a course in 2018. 

Hedgehog Helpline now have around 50 volunteer carers and we are taking a break from running the ‘Introduction to Hedgehogs courses’, while we focus on training, supporting and mentoring our current carers effectively.

We are a very small trustee led charity, and it’s vital that we do not grow too big and are unable to support volunteers helping the hedgehogs.


We are always looking for carers to join us;  if you are interested in becoming a carer please contact us via the Hedgehog Helpline Phone 07557 646773 or email us Email us here 

Please note we cannot guarantee a place immediately; you will be placed on a list and when a space for training becomes available we shall be in touch. 

Vale Wildlife Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre in Beckford, runs a one day course. This is a UK wide recognised hedgehog course. We would recommend those wishing to learn more contact the BHPS and book on.
