Community Soup

Community Soup

Dorset soup is a community based crowd-funding initiative for local people supporting local projects,


  • a collaborative situation
  • a public dinner
  • a platform for connection
  • a safe space
  • a democratic experiment in micro-funding
  • a relational hub bringing together various communities
  • a forum for critical but accessible discussion
  • an opportunity to support people in Dorset

There have already been two successful SOUP events held in Bridport, and there will be a SOUP event in Bournemouth in April.

The SOUP events are modelled on the DETROIT SOUP and more information can be found on their website, where you will find all the resources you need to host your own SOUP event in your community.
