Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity

Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity (BRCC) is the leading community development agency working across Bedfordshire, with a proven track record built up over 60 years.

BRCC believes that everyone should have the best possible opportunity to be involved in a thriving community, and to access employment, services, housing and the natural environment – regardless of where they live. We work to achieve this through supporting local communities on the ground, as well as working at a strategic level with the county’s leading partners.

BRCC also serves as the Rural Community Council (RCC) for Bedfordshire, one of 38 RCCs in England working together under the national umbrella body, ACRE.
