282: Under-users of the countryside
This briefing summarises parts 1 and 2 of the Countryside Agency’s Diversity Review evidence, “What about us?” published in July 2005
Year of Publication2005
People from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, the disabled, young people, people who live in inner cities, women, older people and those on low incomes all make limited use of the countryside. All thought that making more use of it would be beneficial to them but there were significant factors limiting their access. There is a lack of understanding among service providers about the needs of under-represented groups and so opportunities from inclusion for both the user and provider are lost.
