Opportunity for funding from the Dorset Community Innovation fund

Round three of the Dorset Community Innovation fund is now live on the Dorset For You website. Stage 1 applications close 5pm on Friday 21st September 2018.

They welcome applications from Dorset-based community organisations that can show how their projects would help achieve the outcomes for local people set out in the county council’s corporate plan.

These priorities are grouped into four key outcomes:

  1. making people safe
  2. healthy
  3. independent
  4. and having a prosperous economy.

Community groups and organisations who meet the funding criteria can apply for one of the two available funding pots.  There is a ‘Micro’ Grants fund that supports groups who need up to and including £2,000 for their project, and a main grants fund that supports more complex projects looking for between £2,000 and £8,000. Funding can be used for both capital and revenue projects.
