About Scottish Rural Action

Scottish Rural Action has existed as a Company Ltd by Guarantee (SC461352) since 2013 and as a Scottish Charity (SC048086) since 2018.

Our vision is for vibrant and connected rural and island communities which have control over their future, and which contribute to building a society that is inclusive, just and sustainable.

Scottish Rural Action supports the rural movement in Scotland. 

We work with our members and partners at national, regional and community levels to: 

  • build a grassroots-led rural movement in Scotland that connects rural communities with each other and with politicians and decision-makers;
  • collaborate with seldom-heard groups to create platforms that better enable their participation in the rural movement;
  • collectively develop a cross-sectoral, locally-informed understanding of rural Scotland's economy, society and culture that shapes local practice and national policy;
