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.

Building Communities Resource Centre in partnership with Rural Community Network are delivering an information session on the Rural Needs Act NI 2016. The Act introduces the duty on named public authorities to ”have due regard to rural needs when developing, adopting, implementing or revising policies, strategies and plans, and designing and delivering public services”. In effect this means that government departments, local councils and other named public authorities should be “rural-proofing” their policy and service delivery.
