RFCS NSW 2021-22 Annual Report

RFCS NSW 2021-22 Annual Report

This year has been one of significant change and growth for the organisation, from how and
where we do business to whom we report to.

The foundations for this growth and our ability to manage the change were laid over the last
few years but our success during this period has been a result of great work from all our
people. Despite the changing environment RFCS NSW have stayed focused on our purpose of
strengthening communities by helping rural and regional businesses be prepared, responsive
and sustainable.

We continue to do this by:

  • Offering free, unbiased, independent, confidential, and expert financial counselling and
    support to farmers, fishers, foresters and other rural businesses that are experiencing, or at
    risk of, financial hardship; and
  • Providing clients with the appropriate tools, skills, knowledge, and referrals to enable them
    to regain financial and emotional independence

The Rural Financial Counselling Service Program is funded by the Australian Government and the New South Wales Government and is administered by the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry
