During National Countryside Week a further £800,000 of grants has been allocated to rural projects across the UK.
Projects that have been funded range from apprenticeships for budding hill farmers, training for young people to gain employment in the rural economy, community transport schemes in isolated rural areas and projects to educate school children about where their food comes from and why the countryside matters. As well as its normal grant application process, the charity operates an emergency fund for stricken rural communities in times of need.
