We have created the Spread The Load campaign to encourage and help individuals who are feeling overwhelmed to feel more comfortable in sharing their feelings and to seek help. There are many pressures in life and the farming industry, and we want to share the support networks available for you and your family.
This is an especially difficult time with the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are feeling lonely, isolated or worried, there are a variety of support services that can help you.

Ktwo are also supporting the Max Hunter Fund within the Mintridge Foundation. Max Hunter who sadly died by suicide in August 2019 aged 28, had an agricultural background and the Max Hunter Fund has been created to encourage everyone to acknowledge their feelings and to seek help.
The Max Hunter Fund aims to visit agricultural colleges with sporting personalities to help young people feel more comfortable talking about mental health.
