Rural Aid Introduction

Rural Aid aims to enhance the resilience and sustainability of farmers and rural communities through our Stronger Futures and Disaster Assistance Programs. Our programs provide rural communities with the tools, knowledge and volunteers they need through initiatives such as webinars, town makeovers and counselling services, to help their region thrive. Originally formed to provide farmers with hay through our Buy A Bale program, Rural Aid has now grown to incorporate:
