Spotlight on the RSP - September 18 Edition

The Rural Services Partnership Grows from Strength to Strength

We are thrilled by the ever-increasing interest in the Rural Services Partnership and the variety of organisations that have joined us to date.

Just this month we've been joined by Sovereign Housing, National Youth Agency, Germinate, Blackdown Support Group and Mind.

The work undertaken by RSP members is both diverse and exciting, here are some examples:
UK Youth – a recent report highlights youth loneliness as a major concern
Calor – National Grant Scheme for Rural Communities
Plunkett Foundation – read more on their case studies
Dispensing Doctors’ Association - Case Study Dispensing Excellence In Action: The College Surgery Partnership, Devon.

Promoting Rural Best Practice

Many of our members are keen to tell you more about their organisations excellent work and with this in mind we have developed a unique area on our website as a resource for them to do so. This can be found here.

Equally, the RSP are keen to provide opportunities for RSP members to promote their work to the wider RSN network of 25,000, which includes over 140 LAs, community organisations, rural businesses, and parish councils, to mention but a few. Members can send through this information by emailing Jon Turner.

National Parks Neighbourhood Planning

Something new for existing National Park members is the National Parks Neighbourhood Planning page. This service has been developed in partnership with Dartmoor National Park.  The service provides Neighbourhood Planning data for National Parks who are members of the RSP.

Why Not Join Up!

The RSP exists to enable the issues facing the rural areas of England to be identified, information and good practice to be shared and government to be challenged to address the needs and build on the opportunities which abound in rural areas.

If you know a rural organisation that would benefit from membership, please ask them to consider joining us.  The RSP is a solely rural focussed organisation with an electronic distribution network in excess of 25,000 individuals.  We reach all sectors of rural England and provide a sustained and respected voice for rural areas at national level.  Anyone who wants to talk to us about our role and services of the RSP, please contact Jon Turner to find out more.
