“Working with rural communities to improve the quality of life for all”

Northamptonshire ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) is a countywide, independent charitable organisation working with rural communities to improve their quality of life, especially for the disadvantaged. We are one of 38 Rural Community Councils working across England, which makes up the ACRE network. Our national body, ACRE works at the strategic level with government bodies to ensure the needs and voices of rural communities is listened to and included in any new legislation.

Our main focus is on community development and engagement, particularly with villages and parishes who wish to carry out any form of community planning.
