This paper discusses progress around the themes highlighted in the ‘Sharing over Separation – a rural perspective’ baseline paper developed by Rural Community Network (RCN) with the Community Relations Council

The purpose of this research/discussion paper is to assist regional and local policy makers, statutory agencies and community/voluntary organisations in the further development and enhancement of work carried out through the Rural Enabler Programme.
