Helping rural families in crisis following severe trauma or illness adapt to new ways and a better future.
Our TEAM provides targetted help while you retain control of what is done.
When Alan flipped the Tractor, he broke his neck, he lost the farm, the marriage and almost gave up on life. Yet from Alan’s experiece Rural Help at Hand was born.
Rural Help at Hand (RHAH) aims to assist rural patients in practical ways so they can; to return to their family, the rural environment and their workplace as soon as possible.
RHAH volunteers offer and provide friendship, practical and emotional support to rural workers and their families during the recovery and rehabilitation stages.
RHAH volunteers work to assist in breaking down barriers of isolation, fear and loneliness that may exist for rural patients and their families now surviving in urban and city environments in the midst of crisis.
Building and maintaining a strong and positive link between home and the hospital in any way we can, big or small is a corner-stone of RHAH
RHAH advocates for and on behalf of rural patients with disabilities and their families to better ensure that their needs are understood and met.
Rural Help at Hand is set up and run by rural people for rural people. Our volunteers all come from a rural background and have some understanding of the realities of rural life and the practical needs of rural families
