Local farmers, residents, politicians and businesses were invited to attend the ‘Rural Support Roadshow ‘Call to Action’  in Coleraine Town Hall last week .

“Rural Support can offer assistance and guidance to local farmers. Many challenging issues arise for our farming community including levels of debt, paper work, health problems, severe weather and changing family circumstances, all of these issues can cause increased anxiety and stress.

“Thankfully Rural Support offer a listening and signposting service for farmers and rural families across Northern Ireland.
They can provide face to face support, help and advice about business finance and debt, single farm payments, benefits, mental health assistance and many other issues.  “
