It is not often that the public get a glimpse into the work of a BRC Chaplain. Our support to farmers comes in a variety of ways. Now more than ever we want to encourage farmers and rural communities to seek help when in need, particularly with matters of mental health. This episode of Country File, the BBC's flagship farming program, features Lead Chaplain David Gwatkin assisting farmer Sam Staples with keeping abreast of tasks on his Herefordshire farm. David and Presenter Adam Henson visit Sam who has dealt with depression. He talks about the one-to-one support David provides through the chaplaincy.
