The Rural Business Group

The Rural Business Group enables rural businesses to access information via one single point. We work with organisations – who are commercial, community, and policy focused – any organisation who has something of use to offer to rural business, and in return help rural businesses to support their local economy and communities. We are for ALL the people who make rural business work. We are interested in working together – in breaking down barriers and not creating them.

A collaborative membership network for rural businesses.
Supporting and empowering you and your business.
Connecting rural businesses with each other for the benefit of all.

Sharing insightful discussions and experiences through our podcast.

The Rural Business Group is created from the back of The Rural Business Awards as it was clear a community was building around the awards year on year. Rooted in business support; from the creation, to the set up and day to day running, we support you and your business. The Rural Business Group is for just that, for all rural business of all shapes and sizes.
