Community Development Team

The Community Development Team is part of Weymouth & Portland Borough Council. We currently work in the specific areas of Weymouth & Portland including Melcombe Regis.

The Community Development Team can:


Help develop your group

We can help you:

  • develop your group and support you through the process
  • to start a new community group, by providing advice and support
  • to create opportunities for people to develop their skills and realise their potential.
  • to develop solutions to local issues.


Signposting to funding opportunities

  • We can work with communities and community groups to source and access funding to develop projects.


Partnership working

  • We develop networks, help form partnerships and build relationships
  • We promote Working with You – which targets the five priority areas of Weymouth & Portland and encourages partners to share information and encourage communities and organisations to work together.
