Action in Rural Sussex

AirS is an independent charity that exists for all people living in rural areas of Sussex but especially those who are at risk of isolation and/or disadvantage, and for whom rural life brings an additional challenge and cost to their daily lives.

Established in 1931, we are staffed by a highly experienced and dedicated team who are committed to helping people overcome the challenges caused by their rural location. Our vision is for a thriving, economically active rural Sussex full of choice and opportunities for everyone, regardless of their circumstances.

Part of the ACRE network of rural community councils, our work is funded through a range of sources and varies over time. This may include contracts and grant funding from trusts, foundations and the public sector as well as contributions from subscriptions, membership, donations, legacies and consultancy.
