JOIN THE GROUP
We represent Rural Businesses both large and small. We define rural businesses as those who are located in rural areas or who’s customer base is mainly made up of rural customers or clients. We aim to provide our members with inspiration, support, advice and guidance to set up, operate and thrive in their chosen business.
We will also promote our members’ interests with our partners and supporters and other rural membership organisations, provide access to national and local networking, create opportunities to get involved with issues based campaigns and events and further shape our Group to be as relevant as possible to rural Small & Medium Enterprises (SME’s) and micro businesses. By connecting you with other rural businesses in your area we hope to grow a community of businesses who support and empower each other with our backing, guidance and help.
By supporting local face to face events as well as growing an online community we will facilitate the development of these networks. The Group will provide practical business support both on and offline underpinned by a telephone hotline which will triage your issues and provide first line support to address your business questions. As experts in the rural sector our extensive network is likely to provide you with specific and relevant advice and answers to your most pressing challenges. As well as advice we will also offer preferential rates on essential business services provided by our trusted partners.
