Supporting Your Business

We work with organisations that offer support, advice and grants to help you start and stay in business.

The Greater Dartmoor LEAF rural grant programme allocated around £2m of funding to projects that help create sustainable growth and jobs in the Greater Dartmoor area.

The programme has proved very successful and is currently closed to new applications.  It is possible that further funding may be allocated to GD LEAF from the national programme, so do keep an eye out for any further funding announcements.
