As Volunteers Week 2017 comes to a close, ACRE wanted to take the time to say one final THANK-YOU to all volunteers, who are making England’s rural communities such vibrant and cohesive places to live.
ACRE is pleased to be working with The Phone Co-op to help increase the number of village halls and similar rural community buildings with a connection to broadband.
Staff at ACRE Network organisations identify funding, support volunteers and encourage partners to work together for the benefit of rural communities; they play an extremely valuable role and one to be celebrated during Volunteers Week.
Across England there are residents giving up their spare time on a weekly basis, in order to make their community a better place to live and today ACRE wants to focus on those who are providing a ‘voice’ for local residents.
Volunteers’ week is an opportunity for people to thank the tens of thousands of volunteers whose work behind the scenes in every community in the UK.
ACRE is proud to be supporting Volunteers’ Week from 1st to 7th June. It is an annual celebration of the contribution that millions of volunteers across the UK make to their communities.
Every year, the first seven days of June are dedicated as Volunteers’ Week and ACRE and the ACRE Network is really looking forward to being involved this year.
Following the release of the main political party’s General Election manifestos, Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) has published its ‘Election Asks’ highlighting the need for future Government Policy to be fully rural proofed.
ACRE has submitted a response which urges decision makers to ensure that the rural voice is heard and listened to, in respect of building in rural areas.
