DCA Information and Community Events

 If you are looking beyond your Hall for help and guidance, we recommend signing up for the regular Dorset Community Action eBulletins.  They are free and informative on areas of interest to Halls.

For example, this is an extract from their latest eBulletin:

The link above will take you to a DCA page where you can sign up for eBulletins from buttons in the left-hand column, see the range of support services DCA can cover, and details of each of the events listed above.

In particular, you might be interested in the session on "Choosing your legal structure training course" as the range of options of being more than just a Charity becomes ever more confusing.
