Rural communities

Too often, rural communities are without access to transport, jobs, housing, shops and community spaces. The Royal Countryside Fund powers community-led solutions through our grants and resources to ensure that they flourish – now and in the future.

Since 2010, we’ve invested more than £10 million in rural communities across the UK – over 400 projects, supporting nearly 200,000 people. From transport schemes to training vouchers, community breweries to food banks – we’re here when rural communities have a problem to tackle. Our grant programmes empower communities to create solutions which work for them, and help us to create a real future for rural Britain. 

Since The Royal Countryside Fund was founded in 2010, we have supported 407 projects, including:

Community spaces
