The Swedish working group

Swedish Group statement

We are a group of experts, researchers, practitioners and managers that are devoting our time to make this work. After 7 years of collaboration, and many more years of research and practice, we have a very strong understanding of the challenges rural communities are facing.

We are very aware of what strategies rural communities could be investing in and implementing to improve recruitment and retention. While we know that recruitment and retention will continue to be a challenge, and there is no perfect solution, we also know that the situation can be improved through learning from the experiences that we have had.
