The operational group consists of two Health & Well-Being Experts, Agricultural Consultant, Researcher, Solicitor and Tax Expert/ Accountant.
The initial researcher in the EIP Operational Group will assess the individual requirements of 30 participating farmers and the OG experts will then provide the required expertise to the participants through one to one discussions/meetings. The OG group members are two Health & Well Being Experts, an Agricultural Consultant, a Solicitor and a Tax Expert/ Accountant.
“These successful projects will pilot innovative approaches to farm health, safety and wellbeing and encourage a change in behaviour from the bottom up”
This project is bringing leading experts in the fields of law, tax/accountancy, physical health, mental health and well-being and agricultural consultancy into the OG, supported by a leading academic and researcher with experience specifically related to farming in Ireland.
The Project Lead and coordinator is Breian Carroll, MD of Carroll Consultancy, which provides farm advisory services to farmers. He will assist with the impact of this project and the dissemination of its results for maximum gain and benefit within the Agri industry. Every member of the OG has detailed knowledge and experience of the structure and dynamics of the farming sector, and part of their daily work involves direct discussions with farmers and their families. The impact of their involvement is far-reaching, with continuous opportunities to engage with the farming community and sector, not only during the 12 months of the project but afterwards in their roles in contributing to public policy for this sector, when opportunities occur to make contributions or consultations.
