Resource Hub

This new area on the DAPTC website has been developed specifically for member councils looking to drive forward projects or enhance their approach to business they conduct. We are open to other topics that you feel may be useful to feature here. We have organised the resources using a consistent structure that will hopefully prove useful and give council a head start. The resources will be organised like this:

  • National Organisations - links to national bodies leading in this discipline
  • Local Dorset Groups - links and contact information for groups in Dorset that may provide help and further resources
  • DAPTC & NALC - initiatives and support from your local county association and national body including training events planned
  • Dorset Council & BCP - links to the work being done by our two unitary authorities
  • Member Councils Leading the Way - showcasing parish and town councils focusing on this discipline
  • Other Useful Resources
If you would like to see a specific topic added to the Resource Hub pages, get in touch by emailing:
