Dorset Community Foundation

While Dorset is a relatively well-off and privileged area in many respects, not all of its residents are equally fortunate – there are significant numbers of people struggling to cope with disadvantage and deprivation. Over the last 17 years the Foundation has supported many smaller local charities and community groups who make a huge difference in improving the quality of life and opportunities for many less fortunate Dorset residents. It is a little-known fact that in the county there are 2,300 registered charities and another 4,600 community groups who undertake vital work within our local communities.
