The Rural Exchange provides an exciting new platform for people living and working across Scotland’s rural and island communities to have their voices heard in both research and policy-making.
Through the Rural Exchange the research team at SRUC would like to hear from you about the key issues affecting your everyday lives as households and businesses, what is working well in your community, and what could be improved.
We will build this information into our research to ensure that we take ‘grassroots’ views into account when developing recommendations for policy at local, regional and national levels. In this way, the Rural Exchange provides a new vehicle for the views and experiences of those across rural and island Scotland to be heard and to inform policy change, in particular through Scotland’s rural movement.
You can provide us with your ideas and suggestions at any time through our "Get Involved" button. It would be great if you could also respond to our regular polls, and let us know of any issues that we should be focusing on in future polls.
