Our Role

Norfolk Rural Community Council is an independent charity founded in 1986 to support communities across Norfolk. We are committed to continuing to provide and develop a range of services that meet the needs of communities. We lobby on rural issues at strategic level providing a voice for the local communities of Norfolk. We divide our role under three headings:

  • Community Support- Helping Communities all the way from identifying needs to delivering solutions with friendly support and genuine expertise.
  • Rural Advocacy- To provide a voice to rural communities to ensure that decisions on services, policies and strategies do not discriminate against them and adequately serve and reflect their needs.
  • Developing Solutions- To research, consult and develop initiatives to solve the problems faced by our communities.

Council Meetings

Norfolk RCC hold quarterly Council Meetings in conjunction with Norfolk Rural Forum.

"The Norfolk Rural Forum consists of representatives from a range of constituencies in Norfolk that are intended to reflect specific county themes and issues across the three pillars of sustainable development - environment, economy and community. Its specific responsibilities are:

To lobby on behalf of Norfolk's rural areas at local, regional and national level by taking the county view to the East of England Rural Forum which in turn provides a link between regional rural stakeholders and DEFRA.

To provide a forum for debate, the exchange of information and best practice to ensure that it is shared and disseminated through networking with other county rural forums, existing rural networks and non-member organisations.

To encourage relevant rural research where appropriate.

It meets approximately 4 times a year in partnership with the membership of the Norfolk Rural Community Council. It is chaired by Pat Holtom, Vice President of Norfolk Rural Community Council and Chair of the East of England Rural Forum.
