The Farmer Support team is the heartbeat of our organisation.
The staff and volunteers who work in this team are farmers themselves or have rural life experience.
These Angels on the phone spend hours with our farmers assessing their need for hardship relief as they talk about cattle prices, irrigation issues, soil moisture or other farm related issues.
They are compassionate and understanding that each family is different and that their needs require support tailored to them.
Through the time spent talking with farmers, we have learnt that generalised financial assistance is more welcome than a targeted store voucher. This enables the families to have some control over their decisions.
