Why do we exist? 

Our purpose is to make rural life better. 

We work with people and organisations who are passionate about the place they live and work. We help to create new ideas and turn them into solutions. 

Rural UK is more diverse than people think at first. It is much more than farming and tourism. Rural economies have untapped potential for innovation and positive change. Our primary focus is the whole North of Tyne Authority area, including Northumberland. We are also starting to work in other areas, please contact us if you are interested. 

The Rural Design Centre is funded by North of Tyne Combined Authority and The European Regional Development Fund until 2023.
