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.

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 listen. Or, we may facilitate a referral to the right professional help: financial and farm management, mentoring or counselling.

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.


Our coordinators can help facilitate your conversations with financial organisations, government agencies, and farm management consultancies.
