The Rural Communities Trust (RCT) was formed in 1982 to provide help for people in
rural communities whose needs are impacted by rural isolation.
Who does it help?
The Rural Communities Trust is committed to building an ongoing partnership between
commercial organisations that service the rural sector, to provide for:
The general welfare of rural communities by the maintenance, establishment and enhancement
of services and facilities in rural communities.
The welfare of individuals and families with special emphasis on health and educational
Each year the Trust approves grants for individuals where their location impacts
on their ability to access health and welfare services and activities such as sports,
travel, accommodation or education.
