National farming charity RABI is extending its freephone helpline this autumn, to provide the farming community with a 24-hour service.
The charity believes that a ‘round the clock’ service will better meet the needs of a sector renowned for working long and often unpredictable hours.
“Improving accessibility and ensuring farming people know there is someone to talk to who will understand them, no matter what time it is, is a priority for RABI,” said Alicia Chivers, chief executive of RABI.
“Talking to someone and proactively seeking support is such a positive step and now there will be someone available at any time of the night or day. The 24/7 helpline will remain free for all to access and is an important addition to RABI’s services.”
