Maiden Castle Children’s Centre
The Dorchester Opportunity Group offers activities, care and support for Pre-school children with special needs, their families and carers. Our big Idea is for the Opportunity Group to work with Dorset Sure Start and build a Children’s Centre in Dorchester, which will serve the county town and surrounding towns and villages throughout West Dorset. The new centre will have a specialist area for the Opportunity group and the improved facilities will allow the group to offer additional support to families including a ‘Drop in centre’ and overnight respite care. We will need to raise £200,000 for furnishings and special equipment for this and it is this aspect of the project for which we are requesting support from the Big Give.
