News regarding FHA and Concessional Loans
On 30 December 2016, Dairy Recovery Concessional loans became available to Victorian dairy farm businesses affected by the National Dairy Products retrospective price reduction in 2015–16.
This facebook group has been set up to try to get some much needed support to our dairy farmers.
Please help us spread the word down in Melbourne and suburbs and try to get some assistance behind the great volunteer work being done to send out food hampers and other assistance to dairy farm families.
Everything we do is unpaid and all assistance is from what you are able to help with. We are Victorians helping other Victorians get through some tough times. Assistance so far has enabled many families to get a week's worth of food and take pressure off their finances for that period.
It is ongoing support available until other assistance (eg Farm Household Allowance) can be arranged.
We have fundraising ideas and assistance to run them as well as info on how you can make a difference where 100% of what you help us with goes to farm families right here in Victoria.
Let's look after the farmers who look after us.
Our contact details are at the bottom of the page and you can always join in on conversations and give us your ideas on our facebook pages.
If you have school books, uniforms or other items to swap or sell please email me at or PM me on Facebook via Northern Victoria Farmer Relief Drive. Please just let me know when they are gone so I can remove them and save you answering your phone!
