We are fortunate to have an extremely experienced and diverse range of Directors who all take an active part in the running of the Diverse Regeneration Company (CIC). Our Directors meet on both a monthly and a quarterly basis to support the day to day running of the DR Company and to share their knowledge and experience. We are very grateful to them all for freely giving their much valued time and expertise.
