They are part of a UK wide accredited network of forty-six Community Foundations who are committed to improving the lives of local people and communities, particularly the most vulnerable, isolated, and disadvantaged by matching those who want to help, with those who need the help.

Dover Big Local is now supporting our third year big event; Dover Big Local came about because the town was recognised as one of 150 places in the UK that had been less successful at being awarded National Lottery Funding. Since that time, the money entrusted to Dover’s people has been used to support learning, employment skills, business training, arts events and young people’s theatre groups, social inclusion projects and much more.
