FarmHub has been developed by the National Farmers’ Federation, using funding from the Commonwealth Government and in partnership with numerous government and non-profit agencies. It provides support to farmers, through a single portal where you can access information about assistance and advice to manage hardship.
FarmHub can be found online at https://farmhub.org.au/.
“I think this portal is the best, one-stop shop for details on assistance with fodder, water, transport, everyday-living expenses, health, support organisations and more, that I’ve come across. There are dozens of links to these schemes and organisations listed for NSW alone,” said Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope.
“FarmHub collates hundreds of reputable drought and general farming support and assistance initiatives, in one of the easiest to navigate websites available, providing valuable assist to the farming community at a time when they’re stretched to the limit, feeding and watering stock and trying to manage their way through this crisis.
“By using the Explore Assistance page you’ll find every available support option listed on FarmHub. You can further refine these options by using the Search Filters and selecting NSW to find the assistance measures relevant to your needs. You can also search for particular measures and providers using the keyword search in the Search Filters menu.
“Additionally, the Knowledge Centre within FarmHub provides essential information where experts in the farming industry provide valuable advice on drought-related topics,” he said.
“The beauty of FarmHub is the way they’ve brought together the services of the Commonwealth, States, support organisations and charities under one roof.
“Although designed primarily for farmers this tool will also be of great assistance to those providing professional services to farmers such as rural financial counsellors, accountants, solicitors and health professionals,” he continued.
“FarmHub does not require you to enter personal details or create an account. Simply visit the website to find a wealth of information at your fingertips,” Councillor Hope concluded.
