80% of our team are made up of our wonderful volunteers.

We pride ourselves on being caring not corporate, big enough to make a difference but small enough to care.

The charity is run by our Trustees who have overall control of The Dorset Children’s Foundation and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do.

They lead the charity and decide how it is run. They make decisions that will impact on the children and families we support.
Our Trustees create a welcoming and supportive culture and apply ethical principles to all decisions made. We support inclusion, equality and diversity throughout all facets of The Dorset Children’s Foundation.

Their approach supports both good governance and the delivery of the charities purpose.

We are proud to say that our Trustees play an integral part in the practical activities of the DCF along with providing governance. They are encouraged to speak to the founders on an open basis and receive regular updates. Our trustees frequently attend our events and activities and have additional voluntary roles within the charity.

Our families have frequent and direct access to our trustees and our trustees are, through their volunteering, uniquely able to see first hand the needs and wants of the children they serve.
