We’re Access Dorset – an organisation run by and for disabled people, older people and carers. We’re building a community where everyone gets treated with dignity and respect, where we support one another, grow together and make a difference. 

We support one another through our through our Information, Advice and Guidance Service, Crisis Advocacy Service, Vocational Skills Development Opportunities, Money Management Skills Training , and activities that reduce social isolation and improve health. These include our Horizons Community Café and our Build, Grow, and Cook groups, all of which we deliver from our beautiful resource center at The Bridge.

Some of these groups and regular services are temporarily on hold due to the current pandemic but we still have lots going 0n – click to our Covid-19 page to find out more!
