News & Funding

The Diverse Regeneration Company has successfully supported many rural businesses, farms, forestry, tourism and community projects with over £15million of grant funding since 2005.

“After a number of failed grant applications we engaged DR. Their advisor took the time to understand our business and needs. They worked closely with us and the
grant funders and as a result we secured the funding we required.”    Blue Soup Communications
