About the business

Rural Aid is one of the largest rural charities in Australia. Rural Aid is an Australian charity which has the primary purpose to provide assistance to relieve the poverty, illness, distress or significant and unusual disadvantage of individuals and families conducting, directly or indirectly, primary production businesses and who are or have been adversely affected by acts of God (including, without limitation, droughts, floods and other natural disasters).

We also believe in helping rural communities develop resilience and non-agricultural income streams. 

The charity first came to prominence through its highly successful Buy a Bale campaign which predominantly provides fodder to farmers in drought. It has now expanded its range of programs to include undertaking community activities, offering financial assistance, mental health counselling, a volunteer program and others.

We work with local, state and federal governments, departments of Agriculture, peak industry bodies, research institutions, corporate and public donors and a range of community groups.
