Frank Parkinson Agricultural Trust, The

Our objectives

The principal objective of the Frank Parkinson Agricultural Trust is to support the improvement and welfare of British Agriculture.

The Trustees have developed a progressive strategy, informed by the conclusions and recommendations of the Foresight Report "The Future of Food and Farming" and other strategic reports addressing global issues.

This strategy is centred on enhancing the productivity of British Agriculture to meet the challenges of a growing world population and increased competition for resources. This must be achieved in partnership with the wider population and local communities.

We are keen to encourage applications for support with projects and programmes that identify and spread best practice for the benefit of British Agriculture.

Awards will be granted where clear benefits are quantified, together with details of how these will be communicated and applied to the industry as a whole.

The key element is 'leadership' - as the Trustees wish to see robust outcomes translated into widespread practical action.
