ACRE Membership Survey 2023

Research by Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) paints a picture of how organisations in the ACRE Network adapted their support for rural communities post pandemic, and in response to the cost-of-living crisis.

The report summarises findings from a survey of the ACRE Network conducted in the Spring of 2023 which sought to understand member organisation’s size and reach into rural communities, the services they offer, the local context in which they are operating, and their outlook on the future. Because this was the second survey of its kind, it demonstrates how the ACRE Network has changed since 2020.
