ICA covers its running costs (and the cost of its services) through a mix of grant funding, donations, local giving, legacy gifts and fundraising events.

To date, we are grateful to have benefitted from the following support during the 2022-2023 financial period:


  1. For Helping Hands – ICA’s support offer for older people and those impacted by disability and / or serious, life-limiting or terminal illness…
    • Albion Stone
    • Hall & Woodhouse.
  2. For The Portland Project (including Growing Local – food, growing and the environment)…
    • The National Lottery Community Fund: Reaching Communities
    • Portland Town Council
  3. For additional projects and core costs…
    • Dorset Council: Operational Support Revenue fund – core costs
    • Portland Court Leet
    • The Rotary Club of Island & Royal Manor of Portland


In addition to ICA’s successful grant applications, the charity works hard to raise income through its own fundraising activities. We are also incredibly grateful to have benefited from a range of donations from local Portland residents.
