Continuing Support for Our Rural Communities
Health and safety is paramount for the Southland Rural Support Trust. We are therefore monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and will make appropriate changes to our work practices in line with the Ministry of Health’s recommendations.
We will continue to deliver our support services;
- Our 0800 787 254 number is still receiving calls and are ready to support you with your needs
- Make contact through
However, we will not be doing any on-farm visiting at this stage until the current Covid-19 situation becomes safer for us to resume regular business.
We want our rural community, farmers and team to remain as healthy as possible, and so we ask for your cooperation and understanding.
If you suspect you may have symptoms of COVID-19 please contact Healthline on 0800 358 5453. For comprehensive information about COVID-19 please visit the Ministry of Health website.
If COVID-19 is worrying you and you wish to talk to a trained Counsellor, please call/text 1737.
We also have some local counsellors available for online appointments - call 0800 787 254
