Anyone can get into financial difficulty through no fault of their own.
As a welfare charity it’s people we support - not businesses. We help farmers and farm workers of any age, provided they currently work in farming, or used to work in farming and have retired through age, illness or disability. We also help their dependants.
Applicants must have limited savings and be on a low income to qualify for a grant, but rather than worry about the criteria, please contact us - even if we can’t offer financial support, we may still be able to put you in contact with other sources of help. We cannot pay business debts, but we can offer practical advice.
You can also contact us on someone’s behalf - tell us if you wish to remain anonymous. If the person has given you permission for us to call, we will telephone them, otherwise we will write to say someone is concerned and offer help.
Our helpline is: 0808 281 9490. This number is staffed during office hours and is the first port of call for enquiries.
