Established in 1924, as one of the first Rural Community Councils in the country, Cambridgeshire ACRE has been pioneering rural community development ever since. We recognise that there is a need for the whole community to take responsibility for rural life. We believe that people have huge capacity and potential to improve the places in which they live, work and visit. We build resilient communities where people are well networked and prepared for the future.
Our work is about engaging communities to consider a sense of place, encouraging local distinctiveness and drawing upon local assets and social action.
