About the IFA Farm Family & Social Affairs Committee

The Committee provides a voice to farm families on social issues within the Association, as well as at National and European levels to ensure that policies are developed to help farm families.  The Committee strives to keep farm families notified of changes in procedures or policies, as well as dealing with individual cases that affect them and their community.  Some of the issues that the Committee are currently working on are:

  • Pensions – Securing entitlements for farm women so they qualify for pensions in their own right and updating farm families on changes to the pension system.
  • Fair Deal Scheme – Lobbying for a cap on the maximum charge that can be applied to non-residential, productive assets.
  • Farm SafetySAVE LIVES – Think Safety, Farm Safely campaign to encourage farmers to improve working practices and take preventative action to reduce risks.
  • Health – Supporting farm families to make positive changes to improve overall mental health and well-being through awareness and education.
