Watch The Keynote Speaker

“This conference is special to the local charities’ community as it offers a day of variety, including listening to eminent speakers, learning from others and networking with specialist suppliers. It’s a day organised for members of charities and community organisations to share ideas, experiences and identify opportunities to work together”

Ian Rodd, Managing Director of Ward Goodman

“Many thanks for another great conference this year.  The range of topics and speakers was both relevant and interesting for all of us involved in charity work across Dorset. I found the day very inspiring and  I am certainly planning on bringing a Trustee next year so that they can benefit from the expertise at this event”

Helen Stevens, Service Manager of Dorset Rape Crisis

“The Dorset Charities Conference is a key date for all Dorset Charities.  Trustees, Chief Executives, Fundraisers and Volunteers will find the speakers and networking opportunities invaluable”

Andrew Moore, Treasurer of The Swanage Railway Trust

Trade stands, presentations and networking opportunities bring together charities and sector suppliers to facilitate collaborative working.
