Membership of The Farmers’ Union of Wales brings with it access to many really valuable services, all exclusively to members:
1. Continuing Healthcare
Continuing Healthcare is a package of care provided by the NHS for anyone who has a Primary Healthcare need. It is a valuable source of funding as it provides for the full cost of care (including accommodation) for anyone living in a care home and can also cover the cost of private nursing care for those who are still able to be cared for in their own home.
It is not, however, a widely published scheme and many care home residents may have been paying fees which should have been met by the NHS.
a) North Wales and Mid Wales: Our specially selected partner, Simpson Millar Solicitors will be able to assist FUW members and families in the process of reclaiming and, in some case, potential assistance with meeting significant care home fees.
Janet Cooper is our contact there and you can email her(email@example.com) or you can telephone 0345 357 9000
b) South Wales and West Wales are Irwin Mitchell Solicitors able to assist FUW members and families in the process of reclaiming and, in some case, potential assistance with meeting significant care home fees.
2. Energy and utilities
FUW have appointed Love Energy Savings as its exclusive Energy partner.
Love Energy Savings specialise in comparing energy prices and helping business energy customers to get out of expensive gas and electricity contracts and onto more affordable ones. They also prevent farmers from being rolled over onto standard rate tariffs.
Love Energy have set up direct relationships with the UK’s energy suppliers so we can get access to the best gas and electricity rates and tariffs available. To date they have already passed on over £77.7million worth of savings to over 75,230 UK homes and businesses.

3. Personal injury
Accidents can happen in our everyday life when we least expect them. If your injury was not your fault and could have been easily avoided you may be entitled to compensation.
FUW have established a regional panel of specialist solicitors who have a wealth of experience of dealing with personal injury claims and will strive to achieve the best outcome for your case.
From accidents caused by defects or faults on pavements, potholes or slippery surfaces to maintenance hazards in public places, FUW personal injury solicitors will provide professional advice to support any compensation claim you choose to make. Apart from injuries sustained in the UK, our team also work with individuals who were injured on holiday abroad, giving the best guidance to you when you need us most.
