RABI has confirmed the charity’s ambitious goal to reach even more farming people over the next three years.

Providing services and support to the farming community, RABI aims to increase the level of available support fourfold by the end of its five-year strategic period in 2024.

“The Council of Trustees has a clear and simple vision for RABI,” says RABI chief executive, Alicia Chivers. “The need for the charity to ensure services and support are available consistently across England and Wales to a greater number of farming people over the coming years, is clear-cut and of paramount importance to all at RABI.

“Delivering positive outcomes to four times as many farming people and families across England and Wales by the end of 2024 is an aspirational goal. We believe this is achievable through the expansion of RABI’s existing partnership programmes, forging a more holistic approach that will benefit our farming communities.”

Looking ahead, RABI will continue to provide support to those who are no longer farming due to ill health or age. Supplementing these existing programmes, the charity will additionally be increasing its focus on pre-emptive and proactive support services to farming people working in the sector.
