About Us

The Dorset Association of Parish and Town Councils provides advice, support, training and assistance to its member councils, many of whom employ only one official, the Clerk, usually on a part-time basis. The advice and support offered by DAPTC is backed-up by the Associations links with the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) to which it is affiliated.
