Since the beginning Tir Dewi has been supporting farmers and their families through difficult times.
Our founders, The Venerable Eileen Davies, Archdeacon of Cardigan and Bishop Wyn (now retired), established Tir Dewi in 2015. They recognised the growing and serious need to help farmers who were experiencing difficult times.
With generous funding from The Church in Wales (Diocese of St. David’s) and the Prince’s Countryside Fund, Eileen was able to establish Tir Dewi as a valuable helpline and support service, either by phone or, where appropriate, on-farm, for farmers in West Wales.
From its small beginnings, when Eileen would hand out information leaflets to the local farming community, the charity has grown beyond expectations. Tir Dewi has actively helped hundreds of farmers and their families who were, in one way or another, struggling to cope. Today, farmers in need throughout Wales can access the services of Tir Dewi.
To date we have establised Tir Dewi in the regions of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire, Powys, Conwy, Anglesey, Gwynedd and Gower.
We are continually looking to expand our work with the hope that, one day, we will serve farmers across the whole of Wales –
