Routes is a FREE new programme designed by BCHA to help you return to education or employment.
We are working closely with our partners across Dorset to make sure we can meet your needs - when and where you need it!
You can come on Routes if you are aged 14-18 and are not currently working or attending a course or if you're aged 19-24 with a learning difficulty or disability. One of our Mentors will work with you to help you take the next steps and reach your goals.
