Our focus is on preparing the next generation of farmers to be responsible, confident and safe farmers of the future and our ambition is clear – to find a way to stop farmers having life changing accidents and dying at work.
We’re funding training at colleges throughout the UK to highlight the risks involved in farming and offer practical solutions to addressing these risks. We are also researching the attitudes to farm safety to discover how to challenge and change this risk taking behaviour. And we’re sharing the work and advice of our farm safety partners.
We’ve already made progress in understanding the issue. Now, we’re reaching further and doing more than ever before.
The Foundation has four strands of activity based around creating relationships via face-to-face activity.
