Formed in 1924, the RCC is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. The RCC is part of a network of Rural Community Councils, located in each county across England, all with a specific interest and involvement with rural affairs.
We are ACRE level three acredited, a standard of excellence that was reviewed and retained in October 2011. Only the sixth RCC in the country to do so.
Our aim is to provide help and support to those who live or work in rural Leicestershire & Rutland.
To this end we are involved with a wide range of projects and issues, all of which are becoming of increasing importance as the quality of rural life, and the services provided for rural communities, deteriorate.
This website will keep you regularly informed of the range of services we provide and update you with news and information about the projects we are undertaking throughout Leicestershire and Rutland.
