Dorset retains a strong and resilient sense of community and identity. Historically this has been fostered by our unique economic heritage and sporting culture. Today strong and active community groups are a feature of all our townships, as well as a willingness to engage with and welcome newcomers.

The Dorset Municipality is home to a large and diverse range of Community Groups, ranging from Service Clubs to Sporting Clubs, Volunteer Groups, Play Groups and more. There’s plenty to keep you active and social in our community! Information about Community Groups, regular activities and an events calendar is all available on the Dorset Council website and on our Community Noticeboard
