Dorset Community Action is a Member Based Organisation, and a member of ACRE, therefore we’re able to offer our Members heavily discounted rates on training, resources and more. As a charity we really need, but more importantly very much appreciate, donations to help us maintain our support across Dorset.
Your Membership and donations help support the many varied Organisations across all of Dorset’s communities, ensuring these important Groups remain legally compliant, stay resilient and sustainable for the future.
