ACT champions community and rural issues and supports communities to: Plan for their future; Develop projects; Work with others; and Influence and change policy.

Our work focuses on helping people and communities achieve their aspirations. We are particularly active in rural areas among communities affected by disadvantage whether this be economic, social or physical. We provide practical advice and support and deliver training. Through a variety of partnerships we are also able to represent the interests of communities locally and nationally, bridging between local people and agencies and authorities that impact on their daily lives. ACT helps raise awareness of local needs and to improve the relevance and responsiveness of services.
