The Connecting Advice in Dorset project is an Advice Services Transition Fund project funded by the National Lottery through the BIG Lottery Fund.
The purpose of the project is ‘To develop and strengthen an integrated network of advice agencies in Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole areas, enabling providers to deliver a more efficient and comprehensive service to clients’.
We have three outcomes:
- Advice Services will collaborate and co-operate at district and borough levels to make best use of resources
- More people will be able to access a quality advice service they need in a manner appropriate to the location and needs
- The advice sector across Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole will be more effective and resilient.
We are working with 12 partners
We are grateful to Dorset County Council for the initial funding to develop the bid and support with implementing the project.
