Important Update

People First Dorset is following current government advice in order to keep staff, volunteers and the people we support safe.

To keep everyone safe, all face to face meetings and events are cancelled until further notice.


In the meantime, we are running events online so it’s 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 or would like someone to ring you for a chat, please contact us on 01305 257600 or email


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

We will keep you updated as to when we plan to reopen our services 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.
