The Northland Rural Support Trust can help you during and following an adverse event by:
Being a facilitator
Following an adverse event, we can assist you as you decide business options; provide mentors or colleagues from rural backgrounds to talk to; and act as facilitators for financial assistance, Work and Income support and labour assistance.
Being a contact
We are directly linked into local Civil Defence and can provide you with information about what's happening, what the risks are, and getting emergency help. A key role of the Trust is to strengthen the network of rural landowners, managers, professional and other industry organisations.
Being a listening ear
The Trust members have rural experience and can help you get back on your feet. If you or someone you know is affected by an adverse event or is facing a personal challenge, we can facilitate referral to professional counselling, financial advice and farm management expertise.
