Join us & stand up for Dorset

Dorset for Europe is a group of local people who passionately believe that the UK should maintain a close and progressive relationship with the EU.

Leave or Remain, nobody voted for the mess we’re in. The pound is down. Prices are up. Companies are leaving the UK. Democracy is under threat. It is now abundantly clear that the government cannot deliver on its promises and that the Brexit we’re getting is nothing like that promised in the referendum. 

Join us and together we can hold our ‘elected’ politicians to account and focus on healing the divisions in the country and address the problems in our society that led to Brexit. 

Dorset for Europe is a grassroots organisation, founded in 2016 to campaign for the UK to remain in the EU. In line with the new political reality since December 2019, the group has agreed to focus on four major issues of continuing concern.

Maintaining Strong Links with the EU 

Brexitwatch: Holding the Government to Account

Addressing the Democratic Deficit

EU Citizens Rights

We are proud to announce the launch of West Country Bylines, a digital online newspaper for our region, covering Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset. We at Dorset for Europe are working in collaboration with other regional groups so that WCB reflects the voices of ordinary West Country men and women, people from all walks of life who may have lost faith in much of our mainstream media as a way of representing their views. You can access it on Facebook, Twitter  (@WCountryBylines) or directly on the West Country Bylines website.

Join us at the Euro Café!

Euro Cafés are a great place to come together. You may be an EU27 national or a pro-European UK citizen, or from somewhere else entirely. We provide a space to find support, information and chat.

Euro Cafés are popping up all over the country, and each one is organised by a local grass roots group, many of which are branches of the European Movement.

For more info visit eurocafe.uk

Note. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Euro Cafés may not be operating. We hope to be up and running again when restrictions lift.
