Partners & Supporters

The National Centre for Farmer Health is an independently managed partnership between Deakin University and Western District Health Service with funding received from the Victorian Government to support delivery of some core programs.

We rely on funding from a variety of sources, including corporate and industry partners, to extend our reach and impact on a national level and we are committed to building meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships with our partners.  

The support of our partners is crucial to enable us achieve our mission and maintain a strong and thriving agricultural sector.

Partner with us

We actively seek to expand our reach and to build strong relationships with like-minded organisations who share our vision of making a difference to farmers’ lives and can offer customisable partnership packages that allow for flexibility and tailored services based on the unique needs of interested parties.
