Advice and information to help rural communities

We have been working with our contacts in government and ACRE Network to anticipate and make sense of government Covid-19 guidance and funding for rural communities.

Coronavirus has been a rapidly developing situation met with a rolling government response. Whilst much of the guidance and emergency funding that’s been put in place has not been specifically targeted at rural communities, we have tried to join up and interpret this information for the groups ACRE Network members serve.

A particular focus has been on helping England’s 10,000+ village halls weather this storm, by helping them access grant funding and reopen as restrictions are lifted.

Please contact your ACRE Network member for the most up to date local information about Coronavirus and for general support.
