Dorset County County Funding

If we show that the community supports our project, DCC will help us with additional funding:

£200,000 for youth projects in the region

Dorset County Council’s youth fund will support local projects designed to give young people places to go and things to do, helping them to do good things within their communities.

What can you fund?

Campaigns launching as part of #CrowdfundDorset could be eligible for a contribution from Dorset County Council of up to 50% your funding target. The fund is our way of supporting people who want to contribute to projects, and adding our weight to the Crowd.

Community groups must raise 25% of their target before they will be considered eligible for council funding.

Funding is now available to help groups set up community-led projects that:
•Provide young people with places to go and things to do in their local area
•Help them improve their community through social action – volunteering, campaigning or having a voice in local decisions

Dorset County Council will decide whether to give money from the youth fund to crowdfunded projects based on how much they meet these aims and have public support.
