Hidden Dorset Report

The findings from the report helped us choose the funding priorities for the Dorset Fund.

Hidden Dorset Report

Our Hidden Dorset Report highlights some key issues affecting communities across the county for the foreseeable future. These include:

  • Pockets of deprivation ( 13 areas in Dorset fall within the 20% most deprived nationally)
  • The largest (and growing) elderly population of all counties in England and Wales
  • High levels of young people Not in Education, Employment, or Training, particularly in shire Dorset
  • Mental health-related issues

Dorset Fund Priorities

The funding priorities highlighted by the Hidden Dorset Report are addressed through the Foundation’s own Dorset Fund and provide the perfect opportunity for local people to make a difference by donating or leaving a legacy.
