About Us

The League Against Cruel Sports is a registered charity that works to expose and end the cruelty inflicted on animals in the name of sport. We were started by a group of people who felt strongly that cruelty inflicted in the name of sport was barbaric and upsetting, and who wanted to be a force for change.

Over nine decades of campaigning, the League has developed effective ways to thwart such sports through calling for and bringing about, legislative change; educating the general public and gaining public support for the issues at hand; and causing difficulty for the people inflicting cruelty. All these actions help animals on a day-to-day basis.

Here are the key things we do:

  1. Expose the barbaric nature of cruel sports and the people involved, identifying what action should be taken.

  2. Raise awareness and campaign for change by lobbying government, politicians and businesses. This includes campaigning for new laws and helping to enforce existing laws by working with the police to bring justice to those who commit illegal acts of cruelty for sport.

  3. We help people whose lives are being detrimentally affected by cruel sports and associated wildlife crime.

  4. We hold sanctuary land in heavily hunted areas to frustrate the perpetrators of cruelty and help protect animals who seek refuge on our land. We also hold the sporting rights to prevent cruel sports on land previously held.
