Dorset County Council recognises and values the potential of organisations of all sizes working across Dorset to deliver outcomes for the communities they serve. The Dorset County Council Fund was set up in 2011 to build the capacity of the voluntary and community sector and parish and town councils in order to deliver stronger services and support for local communities.
In May 2015 we delivered the eighth round of the fund and in total since its inception we have distributed over £1.2 million worth of grants. We work closely with the Joint Commissioning Manager from Dorset County Council to decide on priorities and outcomes for each funding round.
The Dorset County Council Fund grant programme has now closed and will not be accepting further applications.
