Invitations are open to any organisation who has an interest in rural issues and
services that address and combat loneliness.

Who is organising the event
ACRE in partnership with the Defra Rural Policy Team.
ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) is the national body for 38 charitable
local development agencies that make up the ACRE Network.
Our vision – to be the voice of rural communities – is supported by the wealth of
evidence and intelligence on rural matters that we collect from our members.
We use this evidence to influence national policy on rural issues, from housing, health and
transport to broadband, services and fuel poverty. As well as supporting our
members, ACRE works with a wide range of partners who all have an interest in achieving
a fair deal for rural communities.
