The Farming Community Network Charity

The Farming Community Network is a voluntary organisation & charity that supports farmers and families within the farming community.

Whether the issue is personal or business-related, FCN are there to help farmers here for you. They run a confidential, national helpline and e-helpline which is open every day of the year from 7am to 11pm and their volunteers provide free, confidential, pastoral and practical support to anyone who seeks help. Over 6,000 people a year benefit from FCN’s support and they can help with a variety of issues.

This year’s crisis has reminded us of the essential role that farmers and others in the food supply chain play in putting food on our tables. We were all confronted with the minor inconveniences of shortages in some products such as flour or pasta (largely due to stockpiling rather than supply issues). Let’s remember and be thankful for our farmers who have worked tirelessly throughout this year.
