We can provide grants to help people learn new skills or develop existing skills so that they can earn extra money off-farm to increase their income and be able to support themselves.
We have helped people train in tree surgery, hedge-laying and butchery, as well as livestock foot-trimming and pregnancy scanning! We have also helped people gain LGV licences, take forklift truck operator courses and qualify as medical receptionists, IT operators and website designers.
The scheme is intended for established farmers, provided they have low incomes and limited savings. Farmworkers who have been made redundant / left the industry or can no longer work due to illness or disability may also be eligible.
