Every minute of every day, 6 animals are used in research in the UK.

You can take action for animals by taking on our Challenge for Change!

Too many animals continue to suffer in laboratories rather than enjoying the comfort and love of a happy home. Although animal free research has been proven on many occasions to be safer and more accurate for treating and understanding human disease - time money and animals' lives are still being wasted with few breakthroughs and a huge amount of suffering.

Advancing humanity shouldn’t cost us our moral compass. Longevity for one species shouldn’t equal the suffering of another. Support Animal Free Research UK and you can change an animal’s life for the better.

Every penny raised can help remove the cages holding defenceless animals. You can help free science from the outdated belief that killing animals is a necessary part of medical research.

Your challenge, your way.

All you need to do is dream up a challenge to complete. It can be based around the number 6 or just a challenge of your choice. Whether you decide to hula hoop for 6 minutes a day for 6 days, climb to the top of Everest on your staircase, or you are already taking part in a virtual challenge and want to fundraise for Animal Free Research UK – you choose your challenge.

There are no rules – whatever your age or ability, you can take part. The main thing is to get active, have fun and fundraise.

There is no fundraising target, we just ask that you raise as much as you can! However much, big or small, your donations will make a huge difference.

Three easy steps for success:

  • Register to join Challenge for Change
  • Set up your fundraising page via Just Giving
  • Start your challenge. And don’t forget to share with your friends and family!

The money you raise can be life changing!

You can help:

  • Fund pioneering animal free projects to research devasting diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, and brain tumours
  • Fund students to become the next generation of animal free scientists
  • Buy essential laboratory equipment to enable animal free research to be possible
  • Save an animal from suffering in research

With your support, we can unite and move science forward into a more humane future. And ultimately, you can help save both human and animal lives.
