The Community Perceptions and Worker Experiences Program aims to deliver key insights into community perceptions on working in agriculture, fisheries and forestry industries, and explore worker experiences and the impact they have on workforce attraction and retention.

As part of the Program, workers from across Australia have documented their experiences of working in the industries and what life in rural and regional communities is really like.

Check out the series of videos below, available on AgriFutures Australia’s YouTube channel.
