Farm Support Groups

Farm Support Groups

Farm Support Groups are local organisations and charities working across the UK, supporting people working in agriculture and rural communities. They seek to address issues around health and wellbeing, and promote sustainable, economic, social and community development.

The Royal Countryside Fund is committed to helping Farm Support Groups across the UK to ensure family farms can access locally available, practical help, and opportunities to work together.

What is the Farm Support Groups Initiative?

Following The Royal Countryside Fund’s 2019 farmer networks conference, feedback from UK farm support groups showed there was a need for a central coordinator to allow the organisations to share knowledge and ease collaboration. Therefore, the RCF introduced a new Farm Support Coordinator role. Over the past three years, our Farm Support Coordinator has created a network of more than 40 Farm Support Groups, helping these incredible organisations to better collaborate and share knowledge, best practice and advice with each other.
