Important Update

People First Dorset is following current government advice in order to keep staff, volunteers and the people we support safe. We will provide further updates over the coming months as more information is released about coming out of lockdown.

To keep everyone safe, we are only running online events and small face-to-face groups, which must be booked, until further notice.

 

Until we can all meet again safely, it is still possible to see your friends and have opportunities to speak up.  If you have a learning disability and would like to join one of our many regular zoom calls, join a small group or would like someone to ring you for a chat, please contact us on 01305 257600 or email office@peoplefirstdorset.org.uk

 

Please see the latest Connect for an up to date timetable of online and face-to-face activities.

We will keep you updated as to when we plan to reopen our services fully via our website and social media channels.

 

In the meantime, please stay safe and follow government advice, such as regular and thorough handwashing. If you feel unwell and are concerned about your health, call 111.
