The Farm Line Support Service
Moving Forward at The Farm Line
The Farm Line provides friendly, bilingual peer-to-peer support and referral to qualified professionals when required. “Sometimes it’s a lawyer, or a doctor or counsellor; sometimes a caller just ‘needs someone to talk to’,
but there is always an appreciation for the opportunity to speak with some one who understands the problem,”
says Shirley Munro who will be managing the new office. Munro joined the Help Line almost three years ago as
Research Coordinator and has provided her expertise in most aspects of the administration including telephone volunteer.
The free, anonymous and confidential services are provided by committed volunteers. Board members stressed to
politicians The Farm Line faces an ongoing challenge to secure stable funding to cover the operating
expenses such as recruitment and training of volunteers, maintaining current resources, the toll-free telephone line,
to mention only a few. “This is a health related service. As such, government has a social responsibility to
provide funding,” states interim Chair Debra Pretty-Straathof.
