About Rural Aid

Rural Aid is Australia’s most trusted rural charity. We stand with our farmers when they need us most. Rural Aid provides critical support to farmers affected by natural disaster through financial, wellbeing and fodder assistance. Rural Aid’s community programs help create more sustainable communities by building stronger futures for all Australian farmers.

Rural Aid offers free, confidential counselling to Rural Aid registered farmers and their family. Rural Aid counsellors catch up with their farmers where they’re most comfortable; whether it’s on farm, in town, or over the phone. Rural Aid counsellors are professionally trained to support their clients through all kinds of life challenges and come with an understanding of the unique needs of rural people. They can support with practical strategies to help farmers refocus and get back on track.
