Rural Wisdom is...
...the project that listens to the voices of older people and empowers them to lead change in rural communities across the UK.
Older people deserve to live full lives with access to essential services and recreational opportunities whether they live in rural communities or urban spaces. Rural Wisdom is working with older people to ensure that their voices are heard and their needs are met in rural communities across Scotland and Wales.
We are committed to empowering older people to enact the change you need in your communities and to learn from each other. We want to allow you to live more fulfilling lives as active citizens in age-friendly communities. The changes our projects inspire benefit older people and rural communities as a whole; our projects are a celebration of inclusion and interdependence.
A space to speak up and be heard…
Rural Wisdom is first and foremost a space for older people in rural communities to speak up and be heard. We want to hear your stories of what’s working and what could be done better in your local area so that we can benefit from your experience and share our own.
Get in touch...
If you have a story about a local initiative that started from a conversation with an older person, an intergenerational community event, or something that has had a positive impact for people living in rural spaces, we want to hear from you! Get in touch with our team via our contact form, on 0141 419 0451, or via email at email@example.com. You can also chat to us via our Facebook page. We can’t wait to hear from you.
