Our people

The Royal Countryside Fund is the only UK-wide charity that empowers family farms and rural communities to survive and thrive. From staff to trustees and ambassadors, our people help us to create a real future for rural Britain.

Our Founder, HM King Charles III

“I have been constantly amazed and heartened by the resilience, adaptability and ingenuity of the family farms that still form the backbone (and quite a few other bones, too) of our rural communities. Yet it is all too clear that even bigger changes are needed as we transition rapidly – as we must if we are to survive – to a world in which sustainability becomes a central organising principle.”

HM King Charles III while he was The Prince of Wales speaking at the Farmers Weekly Awards 2021

More than ten years since HM King Charles III, then The Prince of Wales, founded his Countryside Fund, his vision for a thriving countryside continues to inspire our work.
