WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS
(NOW THAT YOU'VE APPLIED FOR THE RR&T BADGE?)
IDEALLY, WE WANT KNOWLEDGE ASSESSMENTS PASSED AND VET VISITS/APPROVALS ACHIEVED ALL WITHIN A ONE MONTH PERIOD.
KNOWLEDGE ASSESSMENT

Yourself (as the 'RESCUE FOUNDER' or 'FOUNDING REHABBER') and any unsupervised staff/volunteers/fosterers need to sit & pass the online (on Zoom) KA. (You log onto a Zoom meeting and are then sent a link that opens up a multiple choice online Quiz, that you fill in & submit).

YOU CAN CHOOSE TO DO THAT ON ONE OF OUR UPCOMING DATES OR ENTER ALTERNATIVES IN THE FORM TO DO THE KA ON YOUR OWN OR WITH YOUR STAFF/VOLUNTEERS, AS A GROUP.
VET VISIT

Once your unsupervised Staff/Volunteers/Fosterers have all passed the Knowledge Assessments, the next step is you organising your Vet to come round (if you are struggling to find a supportive Vet Practice to do this, we will help you) to check out your premises and also advise/support on any changes (like moving predator/prey further apart).

(You can find a template letter to approach your Vet with in the WCB Group in 'files' or contact us to ask for it.  It is now mandatory that you have the 'Vet Check Report Template' for your Vet to use, that you can also find in 'files', in the WCB Group - or contact us to ask for it - for your Vet to fill in, as that is proving to be a great way to help your Vet fill out a thorough report and know what to look for and ask questions about).
IF YOU ARE A 'CENTRE'

Your Vet needs to walk around with you (either in person or on a video call with you) and go through the Vet Report and fill it out and then email it over to us at alana@wildscapingworldwide.com
IF YOU ARE A 'HUB'

Your Vet needs to walk around with you at your main central base (either in person or on a video call with you) and go through the Vet Report and fill it out and then email it over to us at alana@wildscapingworldwide.com.

If you are a 'Hub' and outsource ANY (even one or two) wildlife casualties to off site Fosterers, you will ALSO need to collect and show your Vet - preferably on the day of their visit/video call for the Vet Check - pics of your Fosterers' premises (proven to be taken within the last month, by having either a dated newspaper in the pics or a phone with a dated news report in the pics, as outlined in the RR&T pdf) for them to also ok.
YOU GET YOUR BADGE!

The day that you 'pass' your Vet visit (for want of a better word) which should also be the same day that a Vet looks through your Fosterer pics, you receive your RR&T Badge, woohoo!  This will mean that you go on the WCB website - on this PAGE - and that you get sent a high resolution digital badge that you can put on your social media and your website.

From that date, you have a full year until you need to renew.
ONGOING ACCOUNTABILITY

You start the 2 monthly accountability: exactly 2 months from the date that you get the RR&T Badge.  (I am still getting the drop boxes set up for this - that you can drop your documents into - but you will have the link a good few weeks before you need to send anything over).

What is required for accountability?

 

WCB Holders will drop into a drop box folder (every 2 months) the following...

A. Admission records for the last 2 months (nothing complicated, just what’s come in and why) - This is also a unique opportunity for research to create a hub of knowledge across the UK.... (Records can be made anonymous when published)...
B. Proof of working with a vets over the last 2 months. Just attach a picture of either.... Vet bill / Consult notes / Signed letter from vets etc... ? C. Notes for 1 of your cases - Admission info, plan of action for that animal and outcome. (Just to show that info is been kept about the casualties).
