East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service is a community charity which helps people who find sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.
The service was set up in 1996 by found Trevor Weeks who was awarded the MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2012 for his services to Animal Welfare which he has been undertaking since 1985. WRAS is primarily a voluntary run charity with four veterinary ambulances and a Casualty Care Centre based on the A22 at Whitesmith. Every year the charity receives over 2500 calls from the public about wildlife some just needing advice but many needing on site help with the capture and rescue of casualties. The service is funded entirely by donations, fundraising and the occasional small grant and relies heavily on public support and donations. Reg Charity 1108880
