About us

Warwickshire Rural Community Council (WRCC) helps and encourages people living in rural areas to develop their communities. By aiding locally led and run projects, we also hope to strengthen social ties within Warwickshire's villages and small towns.  WRCC is the only organisation solely dedicated to supporting rural communities in Warwickshire and Solihull. 

Our mission is ‘to enable the development of sustainable and self-reliant rural communities’.

We offer advice, information and grant support to help start projects in your community. Our close links with statutory and voluntary bodies puts you in touch with other groups or individuals with similar problems or goals. We also maintain a close association with local government in the county, both directly with individual parish and district councils, as well as the County Council itself, but also through the Warwickshire and West Midlands Association of Local Councils (WALC) , tel 01789 472616 .

We have defined our seven key services as:

  • Providing information and advice
  • Motivating and supporting rural communities to undertake activities
  • Advocating on behalf of rural communities
  • Attending and playing a part in local partnerships
  • Networking, liaison with and influencing service providers
  • Promoting social inclusion
  • Celebrating the achievements of rural communities

Please join our Register of Supporters to add your support to our on-going work to protect and enhance the quality of rural life and improve rural communities for all who live and work there.

Established in 1937, the WRCC is part of Action for Communities in Rural England (ACRE).
