Meet our FCN Ambassadors

“I’m delighted to be an ambassador for FCN. It is such a great organisation which covers such a wide range of issues in these uncertain times. I’m especially interested in the work they do around mental health and hope that my involvement will help to further break the stigma and make the world a better and brighter place for those that are struggling”

– Charles Anyan, farmer and mental health advocate


“I support The Farming Community Network because I believe strongly that farmers have always been under constant pressure ranging from agricultural policies and climate change to producing affordable food in an environmentally friendly way. I am proud to be an ambassador to help raise awareness of the support FCN provides in all aspects of farming life.”

– Gareth Wyn Jones, farmer and BBC presenter




“Several years ago The Farming Community Network provided vital support to someone in the farming community close to me. Consequently, after becoming familiar with their extraordinary outreach I wanted to raise awareness of their work, particularly amongst other professionals and those who might at some time become aware of folk in the farming community in need of their unique support. It is an honour to raise awareness of the charity, and I hope increase support too.”

– Tim Bowie, The Orcid Partnership


“FCN has long been a charity to which I have had an association. Back in the 1990s they helped to support my parents when the farming climate was tough. Again when Foot-and-Mouth hit they were a valuable asset to my family as there were many farming families who were directly affected. I founded Rural+ training when I was National Chairman of NFYFC and when looking for a partner to work with on the project I could think of none better than FCN. Since then I have been an advocate for FCN, having delivered many joint mental health sessions to rural young people across the UK. I am honoured to be an FCN Ambassador and want to continue to reach out to rural young people, raising awareness of FCN and the support they can offer as well as continuing to support the rollout of Rural+ and increase the support the charity receives.”

– Claire Worden, Former National Chairman of the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs
