Help shape future for rural services

RURAL stakeholders are being invited to help shape a new agenda for the countryside.

The Rural Services Network (RSN) is conducting a survey in partnership with community interest company Rural England and researchers from Gloucestershire University.

The survey, which follows the general election, can be completed here.

As the national champion for rural services, RSN is fighting for a fair deal so rural communities remain socially and economically viable for the benefit of the whole nation.

Rural England is a community interest company working to build the strength and resilience of rural communities to inform and engender better rural policy making.

Its core activities are independent research, networking and information exchange.

The two organisations are working with researchers from the Countryside and Community Research Institute at Gloucestershire University.

Survey information will be used for research purposes only. It covers issues that include rural transport, housing, education, health services and crime.

Stakeholders aged 15 or over are asked to complete the survey individually.

Survey details will not be used in a manner which would allow identification of individual responses, nor does the survey ask questions that would people to be identified.

Respondents have the chance to win a £10 Amazon voucher.

Results from the survey will be available on our website and in RSN policy briefings. The closing date for survey results is 23 July 2017.
