The Farming Community Network forges partnership with Bolt Burdon Kemp

Leading serious injury solicitors Bolt Burdon Kemp (BBK) are teaming up with national agricultural charity The Farming Community Network (FCN) to help support its farming clients through the unprecedented challenges and changes the agricultural sector is experiencing.

The aim is to help open up direct lines of communication between farmers, who are heading towards or experiencing difficulties, and the charity, to assist them in managing their way through challenging times and moving forward positively.

The partnership fits perfectly with Bolt Burdon Kemp’s commitment to helping improve the lives of the seriously injured – which in respect of the farming community means improving health and safety on the nation’s farms as well as supporting them in the civil courts should accidents occur.

BBK associate Charlotte Dowson said, “By supporting FCN, we want to show our clients that we are behind them every step of the way and that we stand with them ready to tackle the challenges of the future.

“Given the increasing uncertainties within agriculture as well as everyday life, it makes perfect sense to take this a step further.

“We see many farmers facing increasing business and personal pressures following an accident that can, if left unchecked, seriously affect their and their families’ mental and physical wellbeing.

“We are inspired by the exceptional work that FCN do to support farmers and growers every day. We hope that by partnering with them we can help spread the word that there is a someone who cares, that they can speak to, who understands farmers and rural life.”

BBK is a leading specialist personal injury law firm who put their clients at the very centre of everything they do, helping them fight for justice every step of the way.

FCN is a voluntary organisation and charity that supports farmers and families within the farming community through difficult times.

Founded in 1995, the charity has evolved from just responding to farmers in crisis to providing a more proactive service, encouraging farmers to seek help before their situations worsen and helping them manage change and plan ahead.

Georgina Lamb, Senior Partnerships Manager at FCN, said, “Supporting our world-class farmers through the changes ahead requires a collaborative approach.

“By working alongside Bolt Burdon Kemp as part of this partnership, we hope to highlight the many ways our charity can support people across agriculture and ensure farmers know they are part of a supportive community that is here to listen, talk and help.”

FCN can be contacted confidentially by phone and email.
