We have relationships with a broad range of organisations involved in farming. They are able to refer individuals to us for support and can help us to help you through sharing their expertise and knowledge.
These include those shown below:
- Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institute
- Welsh Government Farm Liaison Team
- Young Farmers in Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire
- Animal Health and Trading Standards in Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire
Tir Dewi is enormously grateful to all of its funding partners and those who make donations. We initially benefitted from funding from two sources:
- The Church in Wales (Dioceses of St David’s) – We will always provide our service with a focus on the Christian ethos with which we were founded. That doesn’t mean that we will only support farmers who are Christians or that all of our volunteers are; we offer our support to all farmers who need it and ask for it.
- Prince’s Countryside Fund – HRH The Prince of Wales is a passionate supporter of the countryside, agricultural and rural communities and established this fund in 2010 to improve the prospects of farms and the quality of rural life.
In recent months, the next few years have been secured by new funding from:
- Prince’s Countryside Fund – who have provided additional support for the North Wales launch and to help us through the COVID period
- The National Lottery – who have provided very generous support for North Wales and the YFC project
- The Rank Foundation – through their Time to Shine programme, enabling us to employ a colleague to lead the Powys launch – a programme also supported by the National Lottery Community Fund.
We are also hugely grateful to all of those individuals who give amazing donations, organisations such as YFC clubs who do fundraising events and churches, mostly with collections at Harvest services.
