About our Vision and Mission

This is our vision: People with learning disabilities are treated equally, listened to and included in community life.

Our mission is empowering people with learning disabilities to be independent, have their voices heard and to be included in community life.

We are a user led charity, so we are run and led by people with learning disabilities, with support from staff and volunteers. We develop self-advocacy skills in three stages – coming together to make friends, learning to speak up and then leading change.’

We build each other’s confidence, improve our communication skills and develop our ability to challenge decisions.

People First Dorset is now a Third Party Reporting Centre. It is a place you can go to tell someone about a hate crime that is not a  police station.
