Despite the often idyllic view of rural living, many communities are becoming more and more isolated from mainstream services. Local facilities are closing, transport links are poor and internet access is patchy at best. These factors all contribute to leaving residents at risk of becoming isolated and lonely; unable to access essential goods and reduced work and training opportunities.
Communities all over the UK are coming together to save their local services through community ownership, but they need our help to see them on their journey towards a thriving community business.
Whether you’re able to make a one-off donation or you decide to set up regular giving, your generosity will be helping Plunkett to continue be source of vital support to communities, as they fight to save a lifeline.
