This dedicated programme of support for community projects in England, Scotland and Wales is funded by Players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Now in its second year the project seeks to reach out and engage with up to 10 rural communities annually to help deliver and reinvigorate community assets and services.
Overall, the Rural Four project aims to
- Reinvigorate community networks by assisting with rebuilding community assets;
- Improving the health and well-being of 200 socially isolated people through providing access to improved community assets and a network of support;
- Create a lasting legacy of support and community spirit in the areas supported.
Partners in this project include The Prince’s Countryside Fund, Plunkett Foundation and Pub is the Hub. Grants of up to £25,000 are available.
