The Objectives are listed on our HOME page.

As well as being a Registered Charity (No. 1037633) , it also has exemption from Taxation under Section 506 (1) of the
Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988.

The Charity has five trustees whose names are set out below:-


David Jack : Secretary & Treasurer

The Trustees do not undertake the practical work of Rescue and Re-homing.
Irish Setter Breeders Club - Irish Setter Rescue Scheme undertakes this duty on behalf of the Trust.
You can visit their website by clicking the link below.

The Trustees do, however, support other Rescue Organisations wherever needed; they will also give financial assistance to individuals who wish to keep their dogs and who are in need, for example, of veterinary assistance with which a Re-homing Organisation is not involved, or cannot afford these costs .


In order to fund the costs of the Trust, the Trustees seek donations from individuals.
