Farm Safety Foundation

Description:

The Farm Safety Foundation was established in 2014 as an independent charity to help young farmers challenge their behaviours and change their attitude to farm safety.

Since its formation, the Farm Safety Foundation has been working closely with the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs, Wales YFC, Scottish Association of Young Farmers’ Clubs and the Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster, the Health & Safety Executive and the Farm Safety Partnerships of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to encourage young farmers aged between 16 and 40 to think about the consequences of having a life changing accident.

They engage directly with approximately 36,000 YFC members via eNewsletters, websites, Facebook and Twitter as well as face to face at the events they attend.

The Farm Safety Foundation has also developed a unique educational programme which is being delivered at agricultural colleges throughout the UK. Since May 2015, a total of 2,682 farming students in 41 colleges have received their Introduction to Farm Safety training.
