When circumstances beyond your control lead to a rural business crisis - be it financial, climatic or personal - the Otago Rural Support Trust is ready to assist.

Services are free and confidential.

The Otago Rural Support Trust is part of a nationwide network of Rural Support Trusts that can assist rural individuals and communities during and after extreme weather and other declared adverse events. They are able to access Government adverse event funding and utilise support from many Government agencies to help rural individuals and communities get back on their feet. All areas within the Otago Regional Council catchment are covered.

The Trust members are local rural people with a wide range of experience and knowledge in dealing with challenging rural situations. The Trust has two coordinators who are specially trained. The coordinators travel to where they are needed, contact is one-on-one at a place that suits you, and services are free and confidential.

Rural Support Taranaki shares:

John Shackleton events in Stratford yesterday encouraged the audience to consider mindfulness (it's not scary) and breathing meditations to enable thoughts to be current and now. Our wiring needs to be changed so we stop thinking about things we have NO CONTROL over such as guilt over past events or anxiety about the future. After 21 days you will notice a big improvement in wellbeing.
