New £865,000 fund for Dorset charities and groups

Dorset County Council is making available£865,000 over two and a half years in grants to voluntary and community organisations and parish and town councils. The programme is being administered by the Dorset’s Community Foundation.

Individual grants will be worth up to £7,500, with the first grant to be awarded early in 2012.

The county council, in partnership with NHS Dorset, is also Dorset Community Action and the Volunteer Centre Dorset to provide training, advice and volunteer support to voluntary and community groups.

Dorset County Council leader Angus Campbell said: “We recognise that voluntary organisations need money and access to training and advice in order
to thrive, and we are delighted to be providing both, despite the challenging economic climate. This funding will help build capacity, enabling organisations across Dorset to bring benefits to their communities.”
