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.
In the financial year 2016/17 the income was £17,428 (including £2,500 for the survey of voluntary organisations in Dorset project).
DPA has been greatly helped, both in funding and publicity, by being chosen as one of the Mayor’s charities in both 2015/16 and 2016/17. It has been a privilege to see how hard the Mayor and Mayoress work on fundraising during their year of office.
If you would like to contribute to DPA or raise some money for it, please see ‘How you can help’.
