Yorkshire communications and strategy consultancy Waverley has been appointed to support the work of the National Rural Crime Network.
The Brighouse-based agency will support the Network’s public relations, public affairs and engagement work over the next two years after being selected following a competitive national tender process.
The National Rural Crime Network, established in 2014, works to see greater recognition and understanding of the problems and impact of crime in rural areas.
It has a membership of Police and Crime Commissioners and a range of other bodies with interest in community safety and rural affairs.
Director Stephen Naylor, who will lead the work, said: “I am passionate that the voice of rural Britain is not only heard but listened to which is why I am looking forward to working with the National Rural Crime Network.
“Over the next two years, we will support its aim of engaging with all who can make a difference to those who live and work in our most isolated communities.
“The appointment is a further demonstration of the strength of Waverley’s communications and strategy offering to a diverse range of businesses and organisations – from sport to education, charities to community – and we are proud to be continuing to expand.”
