About This Project

An insight into life in rural England / Commission For Rural Communities

Brief:

Around 750, 000 rural households live below the poverty line, and unemployment is on the rise.

As such, our client wanted to know: what are the socio-economic barriers faced by people living in rural England? And what policy measures could be made to help?

Result:

We spent time with several participants from different areas around rural England, each representing a different demographic. Our ethnographic case studies focused on people’s experiences of: transport access, jobs and industry, housing, leisure facilities, and shops and services. Our findings fed into a written report by the Office for Public Management. The summary video has since appeared on the Community Channel, and been included in the French Ministry of Agriculture’s educational toolkit.

Testimonial:

“Your work generated new insights into the multi-faceted and compound nature of rural exclusion. You bring a very professional approach and care greatly about the integrity of the work. Your ability to grasp complex topics, distil what’s needed to be communicated, and present it in a creative and accessible way is impressive. You are also great at meeting crazy deadlines! I’d have no hesitation in recommending Close-Up Research.”
