Cost of living survey
People living in rural areas are being urged to complete a survey on the cost of living. The Rural Services Network (RSN), in partnership with the Citizens Advice Rural Issues Group, has launched the Rural Cost of Living Household Survey to understand more about rural household budgets during what is a very difficult time for many. Independent research commissioned by the RSN in the summer last year showed rural areas are suffering more acutely from the cost of living crisis compared to urban areas. To lend more weight to the argument for more funding for rural areas the RSN is calling on as many rural residents as possible to complete a Rural Cost of Living Household Survey. Research has shown that those living in rural areas face extra costs and the RSN wants to explore the impacts for households.
People are encouraged to help by completing the survey by the closing date of 31 March.
The results will help the RSN engage more effectively with Government Departments, MPs and other policy makers. Members can help spread the word by forwarding the survey link to contacts, networks, family and friends living in rural areas.
