Have your say on life in rural areas for The Prince’s Countryside Fund Recharging Rural research


The Prince’s Countryside Fund is inviting anyone living in rural areas of the UK to contribute to their latest research, Recharging Rural. Professor Sarah Skerratt from Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) and the Fund want to find out the different ways in which the challenges of ‘remote rural’ are being experienced by people and communities across the UK.


Participants are encouraged to fill in the survey regardless of their location in the countryside – whether they live and work somewhere traditionally seen as geographically remote, or places considered ‘within easy reach’ of towns and cities but that feel remote owing to a lack of connections, such as transport, broadband, or social links. 


This research project will discover what makes communities in remote rural parts of the UK sustainable, and aims to identify ways forward into 2030 and beyond. This survey is open to everyone who lives or works in or for rural areas of the UK, and is available in English, Welsh, and Scots Gaelic. The survey will remain open until Wednesday 18th April 2018.
