We help Communities by bringing people together to design and implement projects; develop funding bids and business plans; and by capturing and disseminating good practice.
We worked with Pennine Prospects to develop a detailed picture of socio economic conditions across the South Pennines landscape – to maximise the impact of future programmes and funding bids.
We are also working with the Wildlife Trust to understand what peoples’ aspirations are for some of Cornwall’s wild and special places.

Our Challenges Facing Farmers study looked at the issues facing upland farming communities, as well as possible responses to them.
The research was funded by Oxfam and co-produced with UTASS. It was launched at a Policy Roundtable chaired by Stuart Burgess (Commission for Rural Communities) on 12 October.
The report has received coverage on the BBC Sunday Politics Show and in Farmers Weekly, the NFU, the Herald, the Westmorland Gazette and from the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Hill Farming Tim Farron and RuSource.
