Homepage Intro

Young people in Dorset are falling through the gaps of society. Dorset Youth Association is a beacon of hope to those facing disadvantage, who would experience lower expectations and aspirations in life without us.

Leave A Legacy

If you would like to support the work we do in the years to come and continue to provide help where and when it’s needed by including us in your Will, we and our beneficiaries, will be very grateful. Please read on.




You don’t have to do something extraordinary to make a big difference. But if you are doing something distinctive – a special birthday, running a marathon, making cakes to sell - and would like to make a donation, however big or small it would make a real difference to the young people we work with.



Target amount: £0.00

Amount raised: £0.00
