The Chatterboxes - Youth Action Project

The Chatterboxes is a youth action project run by young people with disabilities aged 11-25 years old. Their main aim is to raise awareness of disabilities and create a community which is equal for all whilst being surrounded by friendship and laughter. 

We are currently running 3 virtual youth sessions per week where Chatterbox members come together virtually to chat and do things together. 

  • Monday Zoom online session from 6.00-7.30pm.  This is for young people aged 11-18 years old. (This group is for any young person and not restricted by postcode).
  • Tuesday Zoom online session from 4.30-18:00pm. Accessible to young people living in Dorset.  This project is for young people aged 15-18 years old. 
  • Wednesday Zoom online session from 6-7.30pm  This group is for young people aged 18-25 years old. (This group is for any young person and not restricted by postcode).

Within all groups there is a focus on transitions and supporting members during this challenging time to build skills to help them in the future. Activities include cookery, safety workshops, arts and crafts, film making, magazine design and much more. AQA Awards are also completed by members as well as using a peer mentoring scheme throughout our projects where older members mentor younger members.
