Dorset Council would like to hear your thoughts on how they fund the Voluntary and Community Sector in Dorset, Dorset Council recognise the valuable contribution charities, community groups and volunteers make every day in Dorset.
Prior to the creation of Dorset Council, all six of the predecessor councils in the Dorset Council area prioritised and supported the Voluntary Community Sector (VCS). Each district, borough and the county council allocated to their funds their local VCS using criteria in order to meet their corporate priorities. All predecessor councils set out to support building capacity in communities, and to support individuals to reduce demand on public services and the requirement of high cost interventions in Dorset.
