Become a Member of Compassionate Dorset


Compassionate Dorset is a small independent community group run completely by volunteers.

We are not a registered charity ourselves so most of our activities continue to be directly to raise awareness and funds for the animal welfare charities we support**. But we also need our own funds to pay for the running of our group…

By becoming a donating member your support will help us to pay for information stalls at local events and print more of our own awareness raising materials including Christmas cards and our new Compassionate Food Guide to help empower local consumers to make more compassionate choices for animals – especially for farm animals – from eating less, but higher welfare meat and dairy through to going meat-free or vegan. We’re also currently working on a new vegan-friendly recipe booklet.

Membership is open to everyone aged 16 or over, and you don’t have to be local to support our work!

Annual membership is just £5.00 per year
Lifetime membership is £25.00
