County, district and borough councils in Dorset work in partnership with each other and with a number of local, regional and national agencies and organisations.

Partnership working improves efficiency and effectiveness by making the best use of all the resources available.

  • Community planning

    Community planning is about giving local people the opportunity to create a shared vision for their area and identify priorities for action which are agreed by a wide range of people, organisations and groups.

  • Crime and disorder reduction

    The Crime and Disorder Act requires councils, the police, primary care trusts, the fire and rescue service, other key agencies and the community to work together at borough/district level to develop and implement plans for reducing crime and disorder.

  • Dorset County Council partnerships

    Information on partnerships that include or are led by Dorset County Council.

  • Heritage Committees

    There is one heritage partnership which exists in Dorset.

  • Dorset Police and Crime Panel (PCP)

    The panel's purpose is to scrutinise and support the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Dorset on behalf of the public.
