Rural Community Network is a regional voluntary organisation established by community groups from rural areas in 1991 to articulate the voice of rural communities on issues relating to poverty, disadvantage and equality.

It is a membership organisation and is managed by a voluntary Board of Directors, elected every two years. Two community representatives from each of the six counties make up the main component of the Network�s Board with statutory, voluntary, farming, environmental, cross border and other sectoral groups making up the rest.

Rural Community Network adopts a community development approach to its work and employs a team of staff with a broad spectrum of skills.
