‘Outreach’ Post Office Services to Remote Rural Communities

Where it is difficult to deliver services to customers Post Office have come up with innovative solutions so that we operate in even the remotest parts of the UK. The Post Office provide ‘outreach’ post office services to 1,500 remote rural communities. This includes those operated out of local buildings, such as village halls or community centres, and the fleet of 59 mobile post office vans serving over 520 communities. Mobile Post Offices visit communities at a set time on set days and provide a walk-in service on wheels.

Post Office is committed to maintaining those branches which predominantly serve smaller, often remote, communities. Although these branches need extra support to sustain them, they may be the last shop in the village and the continued funding will help to support and grow them so that they can become hubs of their communities, providing vital retail, banking and Post Office services together.
