Views around Dorchester


Each year the Council gives grants to local organisations. The grants are usually fairly small, between £50 and £500, as the Council believes that the limited resources which are available should benefit as many people as possible.

The Council will usually only consider grant applications for specific projects rather than a contribution towards ongoing or revenue costs. Full application guidance notes are included with the grant application form.

Alternative Grant Options

Grants may also be available from a number of other organisations. Both Dorset Council and the Dorset Community Foundation employ officers who would be willing to assist you in finding suitable grant opportunities and their contact details are set out below:-
