Beds and Cambs Rural Support Group is a local charity that is part of a national network of rural support groups. It is dedicated to combating stress in rural areas.

We provide free, confidential, advice and help that is available to people in the countryside who suffer from ill-health, isolation, financial hardship, redundancy and homelessness.

Our volunteers have first-hand experience of the difficulties faced by those in farming and allied industries in rural Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire because they too live and work in the local agricultural community.

If someone you know or care for needs help with their problem, please get them to call the Group.  Call 0300 323 1244 or see our Contact page.

Problems can include: business problems; personal debt; benefits entitlement; housing worries; redundancy or career change; training and retraining; ill health; isolation and loneliness; family concerns; succession and retirement issues; bereavement.

The Group is here to listen and, if required, it can point you in the right direction for advice, guidance and even financial assistance.

To find out more information about how we can help, see our Do You Need Help? page. 

Volunteers are always welcome.  To contact us, please see our Contact page.
