How does The Hub

help its members?

We do this by:

  • facilitating and supporting the development of innovative and business-led commercial activities;
  • organising topical events and practical activities to improve business performance and stimulate business growth;
  • communicating members’ needs to the agencies and organisations that can help them;
  • providing an information signposting service for members:
  • sharing experience and liaising with rural delivery networks across the country.

“The Hub helps to inspire its members to do something different, to embrace change and learn from each other.”

Henry Lucas,
Warwickshire Rural Hub Chair
