National coverage, local reach

The ACRE Network is made up of the 38 rural community councils (RCCs) across England who help communities to help themselves.

RCCs are charitable local development agencies, generally based at county level, which lead, support and enable community initiatives, reaching 50,000 grassroots organisations.

From running community transport schemes and oil-buying clubs, to assessing housing needs and supporting older people to stay in their homes, the 900 staff across Network offer a wide range of specialist skills.
