South Australia’s Family and Business (FaB) Support Program is here to help farmers, farming families and regional businesses in drought affected communities.
Each mentor is experienced in discussing and addressing the difficult issues that come about as a result of drought and other adverse events.
The mentors work closely with other service providers such as Rural Financial Counselling and local health networks and will connect people to those services as required.
They can also help make the connection between drought assistance and other support measures currently available through government, non-government and community organisations and donations.
They provide a free, informal, confidential, independent and understanding approach available for individuals, families or businesses in South Australia who may be affected by drought.
South Australia’s Family and Business (FaB) Support Program supports the health and wellbeing of communities in South Australia impacted by weather-related events.
FaB support mentors are based in, or near, the drought affected areas of upper Eyre Peninsula, Murray-Mallee, Upper North, Worlds End–Eudunda district and pastoral areas, as well as in the hailstorm affected area of the Adelaide Hills.
