About the organisation:

The Rural Services Network is the national champion for rural services, ensuring that people in rural areas have a strong voice. We are fighting for a fair deal for rural communities to maintain their social and economic viability for the benefit of the nation as a whole.

We are a membership organisation with various groupings of memberships that we provide services to.  We started originally as a grouping of sparsely populated local authority members campaigning for fairer funding and we now encompass a wide local authority network along with a growing Rural Services Partnership group.  This includes other organisations delivering services in rural areas.

We support Parliamentary groupings through the Fair Share group of MP’s and provide the Secretariat to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Rural Services.
