Coverage of Rural Issues for Young People

Recently our national network Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) worked with the BBC and gained powerful coverage of issues for young people in rural areas.

Transport and Digital connectivity issues were discussed on a BBC 5 Live programme which Flick Humphrey, ACRE Public Affairs and Communications Manager co-hosted with presenter Nihal Arthanayake.

Also on the show was Rural Services Network CEO Graham Biggs and Wheels to Work user from Shropshire RCC Jamie Yale. The show was a result of a film Flick put together which you can watch below.
