As Dorset welcomes refugees escaping the war in Ukraine, Dorset Community Foundation is encouraging donations to the Dorset Welcome Fund.
Dorset Community Foundation has established the Dorset Welcome Fund to support all refugees seeking a home in Dorset, including those newly arrived from Ukraine.
The Dorset Welcome Fund provides a single point for collection of donations from individuals, families, businesses, charitable trusts and other organisations wishing to support refugees in the county. Dorset Community Foundation will distribute these funds to charitable groups within Dorset who support those refugees in need. These funds will provide a broad range of assistance and support, from the provision of essential items to educational support and community integration.
While the fund is specifically designed for refugees, the projects funded will not exclude asylum seekers as the challenges faced by all are complex and deserving of our support.
If you are interested in the criteria of the Fund that groups will apply to it can be found here.
Any financial support is very much appreciated – let’s give those that have had to flee their homes, their communities, the proper ‘Dorset’ welcome they deserve!
Ways to Donate
Any individual, trust or company that would like to help the fund by making a donation should send cheques made payable to the Dorset Community Foundation (please write DWF on the back of the cheque) to:
