Rural Support Trusts (RSTs) formed to support rural people when times are challenging.
We are rural folks who know the challenges of working on the land.
There are 14 Rural Support Trusts across the country. Each trust is run by local people who really know the area, are familiar with agribusiness, and are well networked and trained.
Many of the trusts were originally formed to support the farming, cropping and horticulture communities during the financial pinch of the 1980s, or after a severe weather event. We have seen it all and have a long history of harnessing our networks to support our rural individuals and communities.
