RSABI launches new multilingual helpline to support migrant workers

The Scottish Rural Charity, RSABI, has launched a new multilingual helpline to improve access to current migrant workers.

A.D. Founded in 1897 as the Royal Scottish Agricultural Charitable Foundation, now known as RSABI, the charitable organization ensures support for everyone involved in the Scottish agricultural industry.

The helpline provides practical, emotional and, in some cases, additional services that friends can use to receive financial support from their friends in their own language.

RSABI is working with NFU Scotland and SSS to introduce the helpline so you can get the help you need.

Coviary restrictions and post-brake visa requirements make this season difficult for both farmers and their workers, and this can be detrimental to well-being.

RSABI CEO Nina Classic explains why they are offering this service. She said: “This refugee line has been set up to help those who are difficult to reach.

Working outside the home with language barriers can increase stress and anxiety for workers, highlight the challenges they face in some cases, and it is important that everyone in Scottish agriculture has access to support.

Ian Brown, chairman of the NFU Scotland Vegetation Working Group, highlighted the importance of worker safety and ethics for fruit and vegetable businesses.

“Current migrant workers are an important resource for the Scottish horticulture sector and are an important part of its success. Employees who improve the mental health and morale of their employees will benefit both their employees and our businesses. ”

How to get the new service

The RSABI helpline can be reached at 0300-111-4160. Alternatively, current staff who need help can fill out an online ‘call’ form here. The helpline has a translation service.

The opening hours of the helpline are as follows

  • Day of the week – from 5:00 to 20:00;
  • Weekends: 10:30 am to 2:00 pm.
