What is The Community Credits Scheme?

The Community Credits Scheme is a project delivered by the Volunteer Centre Dorset which covers Dorset. The Scheme was set up to support individuals who have learning disabilities to seek supported voluntary placements. For each and every hour volunteered they and their mentor receive a community credit note which can be exchanged for a health and wellbeing activity within Dorset.


Where Can I Earn Community Credits?

You can earn credits in any Not For Profit Organisations. There are many more organisations please contact the Volunteer Centre for further information. If you would like to earn credits please contact Siobahn Davis or Tony Lees at the Centre on 01305 269214 or email communitycredits@volunteeringdorset.org.uk.

Where Can I Exchange My Community Credits?

In general, ONE hour of volunteering earns you ONE community credit. You can then exchange that credit at an organisation below. Click on the title or image for more information on the organisation. Please Note: The Credits are for you and your Mentor, not to be used by family and friends.
