The Chatterbox Project- for disabled young people

The Chatterboxes is a youth action project run by young people with disabilities aged 11-25 years old from Bournemouth, Poole and 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.

We currently have 3 groups running during the week:


Within all groups there is 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 moreAQA Awards are also completed by members as well as using a peer mentoring scheme throughout our projects.

Young members also deliver awareness workshops/ training in the community, create youth friendly literature and organise community awareness events.
