The Farming Community Network (FCN) Cymru is seeking new volunteers across Powys, Ceredigion, Monmouthshire, Pembrokeshire and North Wales to meet a growing demand for supporting farming communities during uncertain times.
FCN operates a confidential helpline on 03000 111 999, open from 7am until 11pm 365 days a year and last year launched its new FarmWell Wales and FarmWell Cymru platforms offering useful information on topics such as succession for farmers in Wales.
They have also recently launched their Rural+ training modules in collaboration with The DPJ Foundation and National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs to help support the next generation of farmers manage their own mental health as well as support others within the farming sector.
Each year, the FCN helps approximately 6,000 people.
