Coronavirus (COVID-19): updates and advice, including help if you are struggling financially

Dorset Council Community Impact Fund - Round 5

The Dorset Council Community Impact Fund (DCIF) Round 5 (Coronavirus Support) has launched to support local charities, and voluntary organisations that are providing support and assistance to help Dorset’s most vulnerable people and their communities to recover after the recent Coronavirus outbreak.

The fund will support at risk groups who have been impacted by the pandemic and now need further support over the coming 3 to 6 months to help them recover with the easing of restrictions.

Round 5 focuses on helping disadvantaged people and vulnerable groups to stay healthy, safe and recover over the coming weeks and months. Voluntary and Community organisations are able to apply for up to £5,000. Local non-constituted groups who have been supporting local communities can also apply for up to £1,000 provided they have an organisation that can endorse and manage the funds on their behalf.
