Greyhound Rescue West of England

Organisation

How GRWE is run

GRWE’s work is co-ordinated and lead by volunteers all over the country, who work tirelessly to take in, care for and re-home dogs, to spread the word of what wonderful pets they make, and to raise funds to enable us to help more dogs. We have recently appointed a Chief Executive in order to build on GRWE’s substantial achievements to date, and take the charity to the next level. The CEO, Rachel Grocott, directs and manages the work of GRWE to achieve its strategic goals. This includes developing and delivering a business and fundraising plan, raising the profile of the charity, and supporting volunteers who work in various roles across the country.
