The Otago Rural Support Trust - supporting rural people through challenging times
We know that living and working rurally can be a challenge and sometimes things can get a bit too much. If this is you or if you’re concerned for someone then please get in touch.
The Otago Rural Support Trust is a charitable organisation set up to assist rural individuals and their families to get back on their feet following challenging circumstances such as financial, personal or climatic adverse events.
The Trust has trained and experienced Rural Coordinators who are called on to provide one-on-one support in a free and confidential environment. Our Coordinators are happy to travel to where they are needed, so will meet at a place that suits you.
Our Trustees, administrator and two Coordinators are all farming and/or rural professionals connected to the farming industry, offering a wide range of experience and knowledge in dealing with challenging rural situations.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us any time for a confidential chat about you, your business, the weather, your finances, or a neighbour, partner, friend, family member, or worker.
