On 17 January 2023, Rural Services Network featured the following article in our weekly rural newsletter:
The Parish Council has been asked to help in getting as many people as possible to complete the survey.
The survey is being held in partnership with the Citizens Advice Rural Issues Group.
Research commissioned by the RSN last year shows rural areas are suffering more acutely from the rise in the cost of living compared to urban areas.
The purpose of the survey is to understand more about rural household budgets at, what is, a very difficult time for many.
Results from the survey will help us to engage more effectively with Government Departments, MPs and other policy makers.
The survey can be found at the following link:
We have also featured the survey via the following social media channels:
RSN Online on Twitter: "@RSNonline & @CitizensAdvice Rural Issues Group have launched a rural cost of living household survey. Research has shown that those living in rural areas face extra costs & we now want to explore the impacts for households #ruralcostoflivingcrisis https://t.co/JmZNfIVnlb https://t.co/Zadlro6ORs" / Twitter
Please share the survey with all your contacts, networks, family and friends living in rural areas – the greater the response the better.
Note the survey closes on 31 March 2023.
