Evaluation of the Animal Health and Welfare Board for England - DO0129

The Animal Health and Welfare Board for England was established to advise ministers on strategic animal health and welfare issues, drawing on information and support from industry. This report presents the outcomes from a process evaluation, conducted during 2013-2014, to understand why the Board has produced the results it has since it was established in 2011.
The aims of the evaluation were:
1. To assess the extent that the Board has been effective in building trust with the industry, improving Defra policy making through enhanced stakeholder engagement, and encouraging animal keepers to take greater responsibility for animal health and welfare issues.
2. To consider the contribution the Board has made to opening out policy with respect to animal health and welfare issues and the broader Open Policy Making agenda.
