The purpose of the Top of the South Rural Support Trust is to assist during an adverse event (where practicable) and with the recovery phase following.
These adverse events could include flooding, drought, tidal waves, earthquakes, fires, snowstorms, hail, frost, bio-security outbreaks and economic downturns.
Our role consists of keeping rural people informed as to what government assistance there may be available to them both financially and emotionally.
Our Coordinator, Ian Blair, is a positive place to start. We have an extensive list of contacts and can help as a guide in times of need. We co-operate with Civil Defence and other rural organizations as and when the need arises.
Services are free and confidential.
