Rural Business Support is a leading not-for-profit provider of agribusiness services and independent support for the benefit of the rural sector.

Our range of programs and services enable the primary industry sector to take action to manage change, adjust to business challenges, improve profitability and plan for the future. Our programs and services are developed through partnering with like-minded organisations and are run on a cost-recovery basis, with all income reinvested into the business to further assist the rural sector.

Rural Business Support also responds to crisis management such as fire, drought and flood and is available to assist with recovery support for those affected by such disasters.

Our key purpose is to deliver the Rural Financial Counselling Service in South Australia and the Northern Territory. We provide free, independent and confidential support for up to three years to eligible clients experiencing financial difficulties.

As small businesses in rural communities continue to feel the financial impact of drought, a new Small Business Financial Counselling (SBFC) program is now available through Rural Business Support to help eligible operators.

Our Farm Business Management Programs are developed and delivered in partnership with federal and state governments, industry groups and other agencies to assist the development of a sustainable and resilient primary industries sector.
