Frontline YFC Profiles 

Many YFC members are the nation's key workers – helping on the frontline in hospitals and care homes, producing food or involved in supporting the farming industry to ensure the nation is fed, as well as volunteering their time and resources to support those in key roles. We are proud of all the YFC members who are involved in helping the country through Covid-19. Here are just some of the YFC heroes.

Please email media@nfyfc.org.uk if you are a key worker or know someone a YFC member who is one and would like to share your story.
