Making a Difference in the Farming Community

The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I) is farming’s oldest and largest charity, providing financial support, practical care and guidance to people of all ages.  

Although much of the assistance provided is financial, R.A.B.I does a lot more than send out cheques in the post. The charity helps farmers, farmworkers and their dependants with support that is personally tailored to suit individual need. This includes signposting and liaising with other organisations and agencies. Every request for help is treated on its merits and handled with compassion and discretion. The mission is that no member of the farming community should ever face adversity alone.
