The Prince's Countryside 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.

We are now inviting anyone living or working in or for rural areas of the UK to contribute to the research.

We 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.  

The survey can be accessed here in English, and is also available in Welsh and Scots Gaelic – please email [email protected] if you would like a version in these languages. It will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
