Help us campaign for Rural Fair Funding

The Rural Services Network is the national voice for rural areas, campaigning on our members behalf for a fairer deal for rural communities.

The consultation on the way that Government allocates funding for rural councils closed yesterday. However, you can still help our campaign.

We have encouraged local authorities to talk to their MPs about their current financial situation and the decades of unfair funding for rural councils and we are now encouraging you to do so too!

We want you to write to your MP telling them of your frustrations, and the impact on your communities of the unfair settlement. 

You can find your MPs name at this link:

We have also included a template letter at this link which you can download to email to them


We then want your MPs to talk to the Ministers at the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities to share their concerns about rural service delivery and the impact on rural communities that years of unfair funding has had. 

The letter also includes some steps the Government can take to help resolve the situation.
