Drought Forums Coming to the Region

FARM.JPGSouth Australian farmers in drought-affected areas can seek help accessing federal, state and local support services thanks to a series of outreach events touring around the region this week.

Locals will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from the State and Federal governments, farm business advisers, mental health support organisations and charities.

The events will be held in Bute, Clare, Eudunda, Melrose, Quorn, Orroroo, Peterborough, Jamestown and Kimba from tomorrow.

They aim to provide tailored advice about accessing support to help people manage their financial affairs, farm businesses and health challenges during and after the drought.
