We are a group of volunteers campaigning for better diagnosis and treatment for all those affected by organophosphates used in agriculture.
We have no membership subscription or outside funding and rely mostly on the collective experience of those who have been bravely battling against the devastating effects of these chemicals for decades.
We hope 2018 will be the year when the farming community comes to realise the impact these insecticides have had on those involved in disease control and that they finally start to get the help and support they urgently need.
with great sadness we have to report Margaret Percival, the founder of the Sheep Dip Sufferers Support Group, passed away on March 20th. Her funeral will be held at Ellenbrook church, Worsley on April 9th at 1.00pm.
Book of the year award goes to Marie-Elsa Bragg for 'Towards Mellbreak', a novel about four generations of sheep farmers in Cumbria.
[spoiler alert: it is revealed at the end that their health problems were caused by OPs]
