We love working with local people, their businesses and their communities to help them prosper and thrive. It seems they like us too…
I have just received acknowledgement from the RPA Growth Programme that I will be getting some grant funding. This is for providing essential car parking and washroom facilities for my small visitor attraction on the farm. I would definitely never have been given this grant without the expertise of Tim Bevan from The DR Company. The process is very complicated and Tim was always on hand to answer any questions or concerns, he dealt with the application swiftly and professionally. I have tried before to get grant funding and wasn’t successful, largely I believe because the people I had helping me were more interested in collecting fees for their services than being genuinely helpful – which Tim always has been. Tim did everything that was needed via emails, but at the same time would regularly pick up the telephone or answer my calls to quickly sort any problems out. I really appreciate what Tim has done for me and the business.

Liz Abel and the team at The Diverse Regeneration Company (DR) have worked with Teignbridge District Council on a number of grant-funded projects. DR is professional to a fault and we would certainly look to work with them on any future schemes. We know them to be trustworthy and a team that can and do deliver, on time, always exceeding targets and on budget. A pleasure to work with.
Allie Clark – Teignbridge District Council. (December 2020)
The DR team (and particularly Carol who was our Project Manager) have been hugely helpful and supportive with our claims for funding. Carol took time to get to know how our business worked and made sure that the claim was comprehensive and was always at the end of the phone when we got stuck. We really enjoy her visits as she is always so positive about our company and what we have achieved and The DR Company have been a big part of our success and growth as a company.
Jo Moon – Sheyenne Ltd. (November 2020)
We were extremely pleased with the service we received from The Diverse Regeneration Company. We found them to be courteous, efficient and totally professional. Carol in particular was incredibly helpful in assisting us throughout our funding application. We can’t thank her enough and would highly recommend The DR Company.
Fiona Gibson, Managing Director, Riverford Organic Dairy (January 2021)
The South Devon AONB Unit has benefitted hugely from the advice and guidance offered by The DR Company. This enabled us to successfully apply for a grant via our Local Action Group, for a wide ranging project promoting walking opportunities in South Devon. The support during the whole process from various members of the team was invaluable.
Diane Lethbridge – South Devon AONB. (December 2020)
The DR Company helped our charity Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship apply for a South Devon Coastal LAG grant to help with the building of our new centre at Dartington Hall. This was a huge undertaking for our small charity and without Carol’s help the application process would not have been achievable for us. Carol helped and supported us every step of the way – nothing was too much for her. She was endlessly patient and always available at the end of the phone. We would highly recommend The DR Company and would like to say a huge thank you from Sirona for all their help!
Hannah Burgon – Sirona Equine. (December 2020)
The grant application process was a complicated and lengthy one, so we are extremely grateful to the team at The DR Company who helped us to navigate our way to a successful conclusion. We’re looking forward to exciting times ahead!
Peter Jones, Chair of Kingdon House Community Association, Tavistock (March 2020)
I can highly recommend The DR Company to assist in securing grant funding. Tim guided us through the whole process of applying for our government grant which resulted in us receiving a high level of funding to allow us to expand our business through erecting new office and store space. Tim was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and approachable and made the process far less daunting. I wouldn’t hesitate to use The DR Company again.
Louise Pears, Director, Martin Pears Engineering Ltd (January 2021)
The DR Company tailors their support to suit rural businesses and communities and this has been a key part of the success of the South Devon Coastal Local Action Group. This support from their experienced and dedicated staff has enabled many people to obtain funding and grow their businesses sustainably.
