We have plenty of opportunities for people to get out, try something new and meet others here at Access Dorset. See below for our timetable and a brief description of our activities.

Exercises with Darren – a fun and inclusive exercise session designed to boost your mood, improve your health and maximise independence, cost is £5.

Build Grow Cook – vocational group for all ages where members have the chance to gain skills and experience while developing in confidence and building resilience.

Build is particularly for those interested in developing DIY and basic building skills. We’ve just become an official Men’s Shen (women are very welcome too) and we’re working hard to establish our brand new social enterprise. Our Build Social Enterprise involves designing, building and promoting woodwork projects (such as bug hotels or bird houses) and aims to support disabled people to learn building, DIY and lifeskills. We sell our projects in order to further fund the project.

Our wonderfully green thumbed Grow group helps maintain our beautiful sensory garden.

The Cook group is for those wanting to improve or develop their cooking skills – often they’ll prepare food for our vegetarian cafe!

We have our socially distanced walking group in beautiful Littledown Park every other Wednesday. All abilities welcome, get in contact for the next date.

Art with Sharon – aims to inspire members to discover their creative potential and build self-confidence through art while giving the opportunity to make friends and socialise with others. Cost is £8.

For more info, to register or to sign up as a volunteer, please call Access Dorset on 01202 771 336 or email belinda@accessdorset.org.uk
