Queensland Farmer Disaster Support

FDS sharable 1
During times of natural disaster and drought, farmers don’t have time to waste sifting through the often confusing levels of support services available.

Farmers need access to information presented all in one place to get them support during difficult times.

The Queensland Farmers’ Federation (QFF) has launched a new website farmerdisastersupport.org.au, designed to assist Queensland farmers and primary producers with simplified and localised support during natural disasters and drought.

The website was built by industry for industry. It presents a full cross-section of postcode-specific financial and social wellbeing support available.

The website allows you to input your postcode, select your industry and then see results and services specific to your area which prioritises local, on-farm and industry specific advice and support.

QFF has worked closely with the Queensland Government and its industry member organisations to ensure we have delivered a service that will help everyday farmers access the support that is available to them.

QFF has 150 magnets to send to Australian Certified Organic producers, so please contact Janine Heinemann to obtain yours.

The Queensland Farmers’ Federation is the united voice of intensive agriculture in Queensland. It is a federation that represents the interests of 17 of Queensland’s peak rural industry organisations, which in turn collectively represent more than 13,000 primary producers across Queensland. Visit the website now: www.farmerdisastersupport.org.au
