The Farming Community Network (FCN) is a voluntary organisation and charity that supports farmers and families within the farming community through difficult times.
We have a network of over 400 volunteers across England and Wales, many of whom are involved in farming, or have close links with agriculture, and therefore have a great understanding of the issues that farmers, farm workers and farming families regularly face. Our volunteers provide free, confidential, pastoral and practical support to anyone who seeks help, regardless of whether the issue is personal or business-related.
In addition to local groups of volunteers, FCN runs a confidential national helpline and e-helpline. The FCN helpline is open 7am to 11pm as usual to speak to one of our dedicated volunteers. Currently our volunteers will not be carrying out home or farm visits, however we are here for you everyday via our helpline.
Our volunteers will “walk with” anyone who seeks support and help them find a positive way through their problems – for as long as it is needed.
We have helped thousands of people deal with a variety of issues, including financial difficulties, animal disease, mental health and family disputes.
