Princes Countryside Fund publishes Village Survival Guide

In 2018, over 500 community led projects were recommended to The Prince’s Countryside Fund as a result of its Recharging Rural research.

Following the research, the Fund has published “The Village Survival Guide”.

The guide is based on the lived experience of rural residents from all across the UK, and is designed to help communities tackle a multitude of issues and make sure that their community will thrive in the future.

The Village Survival Guide is a colourful manual that features case histories, checklists and practical advice, and is intended to help those living in the countryside to utilise the talents available in their own communities to tackle some of the social and economic barriers they face.

The 100-page Village Survival Guide, which costs £4.99, is available on the Princes Countryside Fund website. The guide can also be viewed at no charge on the Fund’s website.
