We strive to secure strong futures for rural and coastal areas, with prospering businesses and thriving communities.
Our Mission Statement
We provide expert advice, friendly professional support and practical assistance to enable rural and coastal businesses and communities to achieve their goals.
Established in 2005, we are a CIC (Community Interest Company), offering impartial advice, support, knowledge, expertise and business services to local communities and private organisations/companies, as well as the public sector. Since we started, we have worked with well over 500 economic, social and environmental regeneration projects across the South West region.
We run funding programmes bringing much needed money into the area, and we offer a comprehensive range of project services covering business/project planning, writing funding applications, project management and progress monitoring and evaluation of complete projects. We have a wealth of knowledge of how to run successful projects, from small scale simple projects to large scale multi-million pound capital projects involving many partners.
