In 2008 we launched our Raising the Game Campaign. Following on we have been working on various initiatives and one of these was to run a survey to pinpoint the specific issues which affect gamekeepers and their families and which need further help to alleviate and actively support.
We know what these are but it requires research and evidence as in every issue we wish to address and to change if required.
We would like to pay tribute to Ruth Kerr who has taken an inordinate amount of time to write/collate and publish.
As a researcher in education and with a gamekeeper as a father who many of you will know and respect (Alan Kerr) we could have no one better placed to undertake this project. Thank you Ruth. Thank you to those who took part too, which you did cheerfully and in a positive spirit. You may feel this is a small quantitative representation but I can assure you this is a positive response in survey terms from across the board in terms of deer, lowground and upland gamekeeping.
The Trustees and GWT team will take this forward and act on the results we assure you and support you all as gamekeepers, stalkers, ghillies and families, past present and future. Raise the Game Survey (3)
