A GUIDE TO PARTNERSHIP
We aim to represent Rural Businesses both large and small. We define rural businesses at 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 are a wholly inclusive CiC and will not offer advantage to any individual partner – there will be no exclusivity for Partner Members.
We will promote our partners interests with our members and supporters where appropriate, 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 SME’s and micro businesses.
By connecting partners and members with other rural businesses we hope to grow a community of businesses who support and empower each other with our backing, guidance and help. By supporting 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 member issues and provide first line support to address their business questions. As part of our extensive partner network we will connect members with partners with the aim of addressing businesses most pressing challenges.
