Get involved with the Dorset Coast Forum
Become a member
We welcome membership from all maritime and coastal organisations that have an interest on the Dorset Coast and its surrounding sea.
Membership is free but organisations and groups are encourages to help fund our core work.
Members of the Dorset Coast Forum represent the majority of coastal and marine sectors. They have a broad spectrum of expertise and an informed knowledge and understanding of the local, national and international coastal issues.
It is important that the Dorset Coast Forum has a good balance in its membership with representation from groups that span all marine sectors, relevant authorities, non governmental organisations and conservation interests. The current membership policy is that DCF is not open to individuals or issue specific lobby groups. Member organisations should have a vested interest in the planning, management and use of the Dorset Coast.
