Rural Aid

Rural Aid’s dedicated counselling intake line is staffed by our trained counsellors Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm on 1300 175 594. Farmers, farming family members and farm workers can all contact this number to gain information about counselling, gain support and complete our intake process to be linked in with a counsellor. All services are free and the person does not have to be a primary producer; hobby farmers and their family can also access the intake line. Farmers are supported with practical strategies to help them refocus and get back on track.

Rural Aid provides a free counselling service to farmers, their families and farm workers. All counsellors are university-trained and can provide on-farm services or telehealth. They are skilled at working with a broad range of issues and can be contacted on 1300 175 594. Rural Aid counsellors are also available to assist people before, during and after natural disasters.
