As one of the NESTA Democracy Pioneers we work in collaboration with regional and national bodies to develop and research the issues which impact small rural communities and seek to find solutions to common problems.

Be Buckfastleigh is a Community Interest Company (CIC) which means we are a company with primarily social objectives and whose surpluses are reinvested in the business for the benefit of the community.
