Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution – RABI
The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution is a welfare charity which changes lives for the better.
They offer financial support to farming people of all ages who are in hardship. They treat every application for support on its own merits, working with compassion and discretion.
To qualify for long-term financial support, applicants must normally be 65 or over and have worked in farming for at least 10 years. Dependants can also qualify for assistance. The trustees retain the discretion to help people at all times.
People with limited savings, who are on a low income, usually qualify for help, but even if you do not qualify for a grant, they may be able to assist you in other ways. For example, with food vouchers or advice about claiming state benefits.
