As part of our Feed the Nation campaign we are working with other charities and organisations representing industries (from hospitality, tourism, leisure, sports, construction, transport and horse racing) and their ex-employees who have been especially impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak – to get people into farm roles and earning an income.

To date we have had more than 14,000 applications of interest in the programme – from people all over the UK, and beyond. Almost 90% of applicants are from UK citizens. Half of whom have lost their livelihoods due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Only 30% have worked in farming in the past.

We are proud to be able to support all of them during this time with an offer of employment over the summer months. The vast majority of roles begin from the end of April and early May, though we are currently placing applicants on farms who are already in need of workers.

As part of our ongoing work we also partner with charities representing people who were already out of work and in need of employment.

If you are able to help us, or have a group of people looking for employment over the summer get in touch at [email protected]
