Warwickshire Rural Hub – Lots of Information to Support Farmers and Rural Businesses

Established in October 2003 by a group of farmers who wanted to take control of their own destiny, the Hub has grown from strength to strength and now has a membership of over 1200.

Are you self-employed, in a partnership or do you run a rural business that has been affected by the Covid-19 outbreak?

The Warwickshire Rural Hub has been working with the Coventry and Warwickshire Growth Hub to support rural businesses through the Covid-19 outbreak.  To help us gather intelligence on the impact of the outbreak on rural businesses in Warwickshire we have designed a survey, the results of which will be fed back to government on an anonymous basis to help determine future funding and support for the rural sector.

Please take 5 minutes to complete the survey and help shape future support for our sector.
Closing date is 1 June.
