The Chatterboxes is a youth action project run by young people with disabilities aged 11-25 years old which has been running in Bournemouth for over 6 years.
We are pleased to announce we are running two more of our highly popular courses starting in January 2018.
The curly hair project (CHP) is a social enterprose dedicated to supporting females with Asperger's Syndrome (AS) and other autism spectrum disorders (ASD). CHP runs a range of courses to help people on the autism spectrum and families/supporters of adults and children with autism conditions. They have let us know about the following courses coming up in Dorset that are available to book.

We are delighted to announce we will be opening a Centre for Reception and Key Stage 1 aged children within the grounds of Portfield School near Bournemouth, Dorset from September 2017, due to high demand for places.
