The Farming Community Network (FCN) is a voluntary organisation and charity that supports farmers and families within the farming community through difficult times.
FCN has over 400 volunteers, located throughout 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 farm workers and farming families regularly face. Their 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 (03000 111 999) and e-helpline (firstname.lastname@example.org) which is open every day of the year from 7am-11pm.
At this event, Martyn Johnson, County Coordinator for Northumberland and Durham will explain just how FCN can support us through difficult times.
