The contributions made through membership enable us to continue to undertake vital work supporting rural communities across Sussex.

We do this by advocating on their behalf with government, statutory partners and service providers, but also through offering direct support and services to individuals, families and organisations such as parish councils, village halls and community groups.

Members are provided with the opportunity to attend our Annual General Meeting to hear about our activity, to contribute to our local intelligence gathering and have the opportunity to become members of our Board.
