NFYFC has launched a new guide to affordable rural housing with English Rural after research revealed rural young people felt there was a lack of information available on the subject.

The guide, which is available in an online format, covers topics such as why affordable homes are important in the countryside and how you qualify and apply for affordable housing.

It was launched during National Young Farmers’ Week in response to NFYFC’s research that found 97% of rural young people surveyed wanted to continue living and working in the countryside but more than two thirds felt there was not enough housing available for them.

The survey involved more than 500 responses from rural young people about their views on living and working in rural areas post-Brexit and amid a pandemic.
