About Us

Vetlife is an independent charity that provides free and confidential support to anyone in the UK veterinary community who has emotional, health or financial problems.

We fund and manage 3 support services in order to achieve this:

The charity is managed by a Board of 11 Trustees who are all veterinary surgeons and understand the demands of the profession.  It has existed for nearly 120 years during which time it has evolved constantly to meet the changing needs of the profession.

Today, the charity is providing more support than ever. 2017 was Vetlife Helpline’s busiet year with an increase in calls and emails of over 500% in five years. Vetlife Health Support helped over 200 people in 2017.

Ask us for help – that’s what we are here for.
