Our vision for rural communities

Nobody living in a rural area should be disadvantaged by where they live. But too often they are.

A brighter future is possible. One where all rural communities are thriving, sustainable and inclusive places to live and work.

Local communities can be the driving force behind this change. But communities need to be backed by government and have the services they need.
