DADCA's £1.1M bid to the Big Lottery's "Growing Community Assets" (GCA) fund was unsuccessful, largely because the GCA funding round was coming to an end which imposed time constraints affecting our ability to assemble our whole £2.1M funding package.
DADCA is preparing a new bid to the Big Lottery Fund's new "Community Assets" funding stream, and we have been in dialogue with Big Lottery officials about our revised Big Lottery bid. We expect to be visited by BLF officials around December this year, for detailed discussions and a site visit.

Plans and History
Welcome to DADCA. We are a volunteer run charity whose twin aims are to establish and maintain a community building in Dornoch and to help promote and encourage voluntary groups and individuals active within the Dornoch area.
Our main asset is the Dornoch Social Club. The building was originally the school but for many years it has been used for social and recreational purposes. The Social Club was refurbished in 1980 but recent surveys estimate that in excess of £1,000,000 of renovation work may be required to bring it up to current standards.
In 2009 we secured funding from the Highland LEADER fund to undertake a Feasibility Study into a replacement community building, which eventually lead to a successful bid to the Big Lottery Fund in early 2014 for initial funding for the design stage for our new build project.
We are most grateful for the tremendous support received from our great community.
