Support Services

Posted in

 Support for village and community halls is available from a number of sources.

Dorset Village Halls Association promotes village halls and their activities and provides a mutual help network via this website plus events arranged during the year.  

To join or renew membership of the Dorset Village Halls Association please print and complete the membership form below and send it to us with a cheque for the appropriate fee. 

Dorset Community Action provides advice on funding and legal matters to charities based in Dorset.  

Your Parish, District and County councils may be an initial source of grants

Your local District Council or Dorset County Council can give advice on their specific areas of responsibility and the Charities Commission can assist with governance and procedural issues in relation to a halls status and conduct as a charity.

ACRE and Community Matters do not support halls directly but their websites may have information that is of general interest to halls.
