WRI Governance Overview

Wildlife Rehabilitation Ireland is an umbrella organisation promoting wildlife rehabilitation & supporting the rehabilitators who work in this field in Ireland.

In addition to our commitment to wildlife and their rehabilitators we have important obligations to our supporters and voluntary funders. Full details are available in our Donor Charter. In summary we commit to the following:

  • Provide information on our work and events;
  • Commitment to utilise funding in a responsible manner to progress achievement of stated goals of WRI;
  • Respect all our funders and supporters;
  • Comply with best practice in good governance;
  • Provide information on WRI finances;
  • Promote high levels of accountability and transparency


Commitment to good governance:

At a Board meeting on 17th August 2017 it was agreed to formalise our commitment to the principles of good governance and commence our formal adoption of the Governance Code. The five principles which underpin the Code are:

  • 1. Leading your organisation
  • 2. Exercising Control over our Organisation
  • 3. Being Transparent and Accountable
  • 4. Working Effectively
  • 5. Behaving with Integrity
Further information can be found at



In September 2017 the Charities Regulator published “Guidelines for Charitable Organisations on Fundraising from the Public”. Full copy of these guidelines can be found here.
WRI agree with principles contained therein i.e.(i) Respect, (ii) Honesty and Integrity and (iii) Transparency and Accountability.


Wildlife Rehabilitation Ireland welcomes both positive and negative feedback, therefore, if you do have any feedback, or a complaint about any aspect of our work please read our Compaints Procedure so we can respond to your views or concerns.
