Rural Cost of Living Survey

The Rural Services Network are conducting a rural cost of living survey.

The survey is being held in partnership with the Citizens Advice Rural Issues Group.

Research commissioned by the RSN last year shows rural areas are suffering more acutely from the rise in the cost of living compared to urban areas.

The purpose of the survey is to understand more about rural household budgets at, what is, a very difficult time for many.

Results from the survey will help us to engage more effectively with Government Departments, MPs and other policy makers.

 The survey can be found at the following link:

 The survey is also featured via the following social media channels:
