Revitalising Rural

Revitalising Rural: Realising the Vision is a campaign led by the Rural Services Network to challenge Government on a number of policy areas that affect rural communities. It is due to be launched in Autumn 2020 and the RSN is working hard to develop a document that reflects the needs of rural areas along with a number of asks for Government. 

There are 16 sections, each focusing on a different policy area.  Each includes:

  • Background on why the policy area matters, national policy context and the rural dimension
  • Issue and asks as a result of Covid-19
  • Policy Solutions – this section is blank at present because we would like to hear your views via the links below.

There is a survey link following each section where you can contribute your views on what the policy asks should be.  Please feel free to contribute to as many sections as you wish.
