FCN welcomes opportunities to work with research teams and collaborate on reports and papers to provide insights into the experiences of farmers and farming families.

We have access to a wide network of farmers and have specialist research communications knowledge to help promote and publicise research and findings.

Please contact Alex Phillimore, Head of Communications and Development, on if you are involved in research or planning any studies and may like to work with FCN.

As part of our organisational strategy, we hope to inform future policy decisions by being a champion for the farming community.
