Rural Support Trust
The Waikato Hauraki Coromandel Rural Support Trust is a part of a nationwide charitable organisation set up to work with primary producers during challenging times.
Our region spans from South of the Auckland Harbour bridge to Lake Taupo, including the Hauraki and Coromandel regions, encompassing the 11 territorial Council authorities and Waikato Regional Council.
We are able to provide free one-on-one confidential support for farmers and growers at a time and place that suits. If needed, we may facilitate a referral to the right professional help, such as farm management, mentoring or counselling.
The Trust has access to rural networks and professionals, health services and providers, local and central government agencies, and Civil Defence, allowing us to be well placed to assist in times of need.
Our facilitators are located throughout our region. They are rural people with local knowledge who have faced the challenges that rural life brings.
If you are experiencing or are worried about any personal and/or business related pressure, whether it is stresses related to employment, financial, animal welfare, health and wellbeing challenges or during and after extreme weather events our team are available to listen and work alongside you to achieve positive outcome.
You can contact us today on 0800 787 254 in confidence.
