Radikls is based in Dorset and over the years we have developed close links with the local community. We believe in supporting local charitable and sports ventures, which feed back into the community and help to provide opportunities and support for young people and adults in the area. We do this by running their websites on a non-profit basis and by attending charity events, and contributing in any way we can. Below is a little bit of information about some of the charities and clubs that we support.
Mosaic is a Dorset wide charity offering a pathway of support to bereaved children, young people and their families.
