Rural communities

We are involved in numerous groups, striving to get a fair deal for residents and businesses in rural Hampshire.

Our rural influencing and advocacy work is focused on improving the quality of life and well-being for Hampshire’s residents and promoting the interests of rural businesses. To do this we:

  • are on a number of forums, partnerships and subgroups;
  • respond to consultation exercises;
  • provide (local) evidence and intelligence to help ensure rural concerns and priorities are taken into account in policy, strategy and work plans;
  • highlight the issues that are of particular significance to those at risk of exclusion or who find it difficult to have their voice heard.

Some of the networks we are currently represented on are:
