What we do:
National Charity – Pastoral and practical support for farming families going through tough times.
The Farming Community Network is a Christian farming charity offering pastoral support and practical help to farming families.
- We are available to anyone in the farming community
- We listen to their concerns – whatever they might be
- We respond quickly and confidentially to requests for help
- We support families for as long as it takes to resolve their issues
Somerset FCN has been working with farming families for 21 years. We have 34 volunteers who all have farming experience and pastoral understanding. They have a range of different skills and past experiences but their main quality is that they understand the situations presented to them. Their main role is to listen confidentially and non-judgementally and to walk beside people for as long as it takes to resolve difficult issues. We are not advisors but try to help people find the best way forward.
We are working with many other organisations in our county and have a very close relationship with local churches and their congregations.
Working together often brings the best conclusions.
