Scottish Rural Action (SRA) aims to be a powerful voice for the people of rural Scotland. We were established in 2013 as a non-profit organisation to deliver the Scottish Rural Parliament and build the foundations for a longer term rural movement.
The next stage in our development is to build our grass-roots presence and influence by engaging volunteers in our campaigns on issues prioritised by rural communities. In 2017-18 these are digital connectivity, land, business, transport and democracy and governance.
