Improving Resilience

The Rural Community Council (RCC) is a community development charity working to create stronger and more connected communities across Leicestershire, Rutland and the surrounding rural areas.

We understand the role that simple things like a cup of coffee, starting a conversation, supporting local voluntary action, and accessible community spaces can play in increasing wellbeing, tackling disadvantage and improving overall quality of life in your community.
