Connected communities reaching their potential for social benefit across Dorset.

MISSION:  Bringing people together to develop community based solutions that deliver better services for the benefit of all.

Our work is based on these principles:

  • Local need at the heart of Community Action – providing services where a local need is clearly identified.
  • Inclusion of those most disadvantaged – actively encouraging and involving people and groups who are most often excluded.
  • Empowerment of local people and groups – to develop their own solutions to the challenges they face.
  • Independence to challenge for good – enabling advocacy on behalf of local people and groups.
  • Partnership as a positive way forward – collaborating with local people, groups, and stakeholders to find the best local solutions.
