Who is eligible?

People who work on, or have worked on a farm, live in England and need financial assistance. 

To be able to apply, your total weekly income is less than the average current agricultural minimum wage as stated in the Agricultural Minimum Wage Order.

If you are the widow, widower, child or dependant of a deceased farm worker, you can also apply.
