Working together for a strong and successful Dorset

Dorset is a remarkable place.

From Lyme Regis in the west to Shaftesbury in the north and Christchurch out east, it boasts endless heritage sites and historic links. But right now it has one eye firmly on its future.

Dorset County Council Crowdfunder is the pioneering new partnership, leading the way to help communities achieve even more with essential extra funding.

It's available for youth projects across the region, but don't worry if you don't fall into that category. You can still be a part of it all by adding a project of your own.

So if you’ve got a bright idea for the future of Dorset, turn to the Crowd to make it happen. There’s never been a better time to #CrowdfundDorset.

Crowdfunder is a new and exciting way for us to help unlock the incredible ideas and potential within our communities and make a real difference for people in Dorset.

We aim to turn this funding into £1m for great youth projects that give young people places to go and things to do or encourage them to be active in their communities. #CrowdfundDorset is a new way of helping local communities make things happen.
