The Chairperson spoke on the Plains Ward initiative to assist with members of the farming community experiencing stress due to the recent low dairy pay out.

The members were advised that the Ward chair has been working with staff to invite proposed social support groups, dairy farm agencies and financial advisors who could assist in providing help to members of the farming community.

It has been proposed that a meeting of invited participants be held at the Paeroa Council office on a date to be confirmed and that an appropriate person is appointed to act as a facilitator to assist with this meeting.

A member also proposed that a ‘buddy’ system be considered where members of the farming community are supported individually by the support people.
