In December 2014 we supported two of our members (Adam and William) to write a few articles in the local newspaper, the Dorset Echo.

The articles were really popular! The Dorset Echo liked them so much they invited Adam and William to write a weekly column.

So, since October 2015, Adam and William have written a column in the Echo every week. At the end of January 2017, Adam decided to step down to let others have a go.

Now William hosts the column and invites other members as ‘guest writers’ to share their thoughts.

If you have a learning disability and would like to be a guest writer, please contact or call 07970 240555

As far as we know, it is the only column in any UK newspaper written by people with learning disabilities.
