Angels on the Road

Our Angels on the Road program involves visiting farmers on their property to deliver food hampers, care packs and a listening ear.

Our Angels travel thousands of kilometres each year to visit farmers in need and travel to some of the most remote and disaster ridden areas of our country.

Our Angels come from a rural background which means they can assess the real impacts on our farmers and guide them to the appropriate help and support to get them back on their feet.

The Angels on the Road refer farmers to many agencies for help and support including, local healthcare providers, mental health services, financial counsellors, Government agencies, non-government organisations, and local councils who work collectively to ensure all aspects of the farmer’s health and wellbeing are being met.

Currently our Angels On The Road program operates throughout Queensland and hope to expand this service to other states with the help of the local community, individual philanthropists, and corporate Australia.
