The Chatterboxes - Townsend (Bournemouth) Group

The Chatterboxes is a youth action project run by young people with disabilities in Bournemouth, Poole and other parts of Dorset.

Our main aim is to raise awareness of disabilities and create a community which is equal for all whilst being surrounded by friendship and laughter.

The Townsend project group is for young people aged 11-18 years old. 

The group has a focus on transitions and supporting members to build skills to help them in the future. Activities include cookery, 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.

See the website for details of other groups.
