Rural Us aims to build on the work that already happens with the community and voluntary sectors and through complementary therapies and statutory services. The goal is to identify overlaps and gaps and develop new and innovative projects, sharing learning across the area.

“This is really exciting,” said Jane Pannell, NNVF chairman. “We believe that there are some real opportunities for improving wellbeing in our areas and we’re enormously grateful to the Big Lottery for agreeing to fund our project. So many projects are urban based and we’re determined to create some really good examples of what can be done in a rural context.”
