East Dorset CA is an independent charity and as such receives no support from central government. It is reliant on three main sources of income:
· contributions from the local authority and local town and parish councils in recognition of the work undertaken for their constituents
· contributions from the Friends of the East Dorset CA
· grants and donations from local businessesor other charity and grant making organisations
Current government policy is impacting significantly on the funding and organisation of local authorities over the next three to five years, and there is great uncertainty over the level of support the CA will get in the future. There therefore needs to be a transformational change in the approach to funding the service, with much greater emphasis being place on fundraising.
We will be looking at identifying support from every possible source to fund our plan to expand our services into more rural area and to help increase thenumbers of people we can help. If you are able to help please make a donation through the Donate symbol on the home page.
