Our Mission

Try This Dorchester is a community led skills sharing project that encourages local residents to try their hand at running a workshop on a topic they are passionate about while enabling others to try something they have not done before. The aim of the project is not just to allow people to try something once but to pave the way for the development of new hobbies, skills and interests, even careers.

Social benefits of the project include skills enhancement, confidence building, reduction in social isolation and helping people to develop a more positive sense of belonging to their local community. The project is low cost and has the potential to create a lasting legacy.
