When circumstances beyond your control lead to a rural business crisis - financial, climatic or personal - the East Coast Rural Support Trust is here to assist.
Our services to you are free and confidential.
We are part of a nationwide network of Rural Support Trusts that can assist rural people and communities during and after extreme weather and other adverse events. We can access Government adverse event funding and connect you with support from Government agencies, helping individuals and your rural communities get back on your feet.
Our Trust members are local rural people with a wide range of experience and knowledge in dealing with challenging rural situations. The Trust has specially trained coordinators who travel to wherever they are needed. Contact is one-on-one at a location of your choice.
The East Coast Rural Support Trust is a charitable trust covering the East Coast of the North Island from East Cape to Cape Palliser.
