At Hack Back CIC we have a particularly difficult time with funding. When we apply for funding, funding bodies think that the money will be spent on the birds we work with and quickly reject our application without finding out more. The food, welfare and equipment for the birds is provided by Cheshire Falconry free of charge. Any funding we get is used to impact directly on the lives of the people we work with.
As a psychologists we have worked with individuals and groups for many years. Anita Morris started working with birds of prey 17 years ago after meeting Steve Birchall who owns Cheshire Falconry. Prior to that point she had no interest in the birds whatsoever. She then researched falconry, birds of prey and the cultural aspects of falconry and found strong links with Emotional Intelligence. This was followed by piloting interventions with a wide range of people combining interaction with birds of prey with positive psychology.
We have a waiting list of children and young people who need support and we need your help to enable us to provide that support. You can buy something from Murray’s Market, adopt a bird through our adoption scheme or make a donation.
Your help really does make a difference.
