Where Does Our Funding Come From?

DPA is supported by local organisations and individuals, including the town and country Churches in the DT1 and DT2 area. All its income comes from donations, fund-raising events and local charitable trusts.

2017 - 2018

The income received in financial year 2017 - 2018 was £23,417, which includes a £5,000 grant to enable the survey of voluntary organisations in West Dorset to be converted into an online database.

An additional £15,000 was donated to Dorchester Poverty Action at the end of that financial year after the closure of Second Chance Furniture.

2016 - 2017

In the financial year 2016/17 the income was £17,428 (including £2,500 for the survey of voluntary organisations in Dorset project).
