Nottinghamshire Rural Support

Nottinghamshire Rural Support - Helping Farming Families in NottsNottinghamshire Rural Support provides free volunteer support for farmers, their families and others in the rural community who are going through difficult times that may be leading to anxiety and stress.

Independent working is often thought to be a strength but it can lead to isolation and anxiety. Many farmers work alone in small one man businesses with little human interaction.

Whether business, family, health or farming issues our caseworkers are there to listen, help and remain in contact as long as required.

We find that through being there and listening it can in itself allow an individual to work towards finding their own solution. At other times our volunteer may suggest a trained professional to help resolve a problem.

We work in partnership with existing agencies such as LRSN, RABI, and FCN and with local health care professionals to provide appropriate coordinated assistance to farmers.

Nottinghamshire Rural Support – Here to help farming families in Notts.

FREE Health Screening Clinic 

With Lincolnshire Rural Support Network (LRSN) we provide all farmers and their staff attending Newark Livestock Market a free health screening clinic.

Since opening in Newark Market statistics show more than 300 Notts farmers and their staff have received advice or basic health tests for diabetes or blood pressure.

This service is operated by the experienced LRSN. Funding for Notts farmers is currently secured from Newark and Sherwood Clinical Commissioning Group. NRS support the livestock market with Volunteer and Chaplaincy input.

NRS are deeply grateful for this organisational and financial support and the provision of facilities by the market operators Doug and Rachel Gascoine.
