Rural Support Trusts (RSTs) are here for rural people and farming families across New Zealand.
On any normal day, we know that living and working rurally can be a challenge. Sometimes things can get a bit too much. If this might be you right now, or you are concerned for a family member or friend, call (0800 787254) for a free, confidential chat.
RSTs cover all aspects of rural agribusiness; dry stock, dairy, cropping, horticulture, forestry, poultry, and rural contracting. We support all rural people - owners, managers, staff, and contractors.
Our services are free and confidential.
Who are we?
Many of the trusts were originally formed to support the farming, cropping and horticulture communities during the financial pinch of the 1980s, or after a severe weather event. We have seen it all and have a long history of harnessing our networks to support our rural individuals and communities.
