Need help on-farm as a result of the quakes? Or want to work / volunteer?

Contact 0800 327 646 (0800 FARMING) to lodge requests for help on the farm, or to offer your help as a volunteer or skilled worker.

Government has provided $600k to fund skilled on-farm workers and volunteers to assist with recovery from the earthquake up to 31 May 2017.

Road access and travel

The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) is managing all roads in and around the affected areas.  For more information, see the NZTA website or contact the NZTA on 0800 44 44 49 or email EQSHRoadInfo@nzta.govt.nz

Other ways to get help and information

  • In an emergency call 111
  • If you are concerned about someone’s stress levels or mental state – your partner, family, neighbour, friend, worker, or yourself - call your local Rural Support Trust on 0800 RURAL HELP (0800 787 254) for a free, private and confidential chat. Trusts have coordinators who are trained to help. They can come and see you at a location of your choice, and, if needed, point you in the right direction for more assistance.  
  • If your circumstances have changed as a result of the earthquake, talk to your accountant, bank, and Work and Income to see other help for which you may be eligible.
