Our Trust is about rural people helping rural people during difficult times - no matter what or when
Our facilitators are skilled in assisting rural people through adverse events such as flooding, drought, snowstorms; as well as financial, animal welfare, and personal crises.
Our Trust is well-connected to rural networks, rural professionals, Civil Defence, and local and central government agencies, so we are well-placed to get things done that might be difficult for individuals.
More specifically we:
Help during and following an adverse weather event
We are directly linked into local Civil Defence, can provide you with information, and can assist you in getting emergency or on-going help. This may include movement of stock, financial and/or family support, labour or other needs during or following an adverse event.
Facilitate and advocate
Our coordinators can help facilitate your conversations with financial organisations, government agencies, and farm management consultancies.
Offer support during personal, environmental, and/or financial difficulties
Our facilitators are trained to help find options to manage these types of rural challenges. Sometimes all that's needed is someone to have a chat with. Or, we may facilitate a referral to the right professional help: financial and farm management, mentoring or counselling.
