Publications - Overview

Since its inception in 1991, Rural Community Network has produced many publications to accompany editions of the longstanding Network News and our newest addition, Policy Link. These publications can only be downloaded by members although the excerpts below will give members and non members a flavour of what is included within the publication.

If you are not a member and wish to obtain a copy of any of the publications, please contact the office or email where we will be happy to post the publication out to you at a charge. Alternatively, click on the link below……
