The Post Office network in the UK cannot survive any more closures, according to the National Federation of SubPostmasters (NFSP).
It has urged the government to extend financial support to post offices and also increase the number of services offered by the organisation.
George Thompson, general secretary of the federation, said the post office network has "reached a crossroads", adding the "time has come for words to cease and for action to take place".
He stated the government "faces a stark choice" regarding the post office following "many years of contraction and decline".
Mr Thompson said: "We can continue down the path of further closures, loss of work and general indifference, or we can change things by being bold and decisive to make the most of this vital national asset which binds local communities and economies together across the UK."
The NFSP recently issued a report which claimed that 900 rural mailwork sites are threatened by Royal Mail sorting and delivery office closures.
