Let's Talk Moor

Let's Talk Moor is a community project based in Turlin Moor, Poole. We work with local residents to help them develop improved community facilities.


During 2016/17, we spent time asking local people what would make their community better. Their highest priorities were:

  • Improvements to children's play parks.
  • More safe/organised activities for young people, especially under 11s, after school and during holidays.
  • More opportunities to participate in sport / physical activity (for all ages).
  • A skatepark for young people.
  • More social and leisure activities for older people.

  • A space where local people can come together, meet friends and access activities.

  • Better access to advice and support around children, work and training, money and budgeting, housing and benefits.

  • Local healthcare facilities, especially a pharmacy.

Turlin Moor has a high proportion of young people and families, and many of their priorities reflect this. As a result of our work, a group of local residents has formed as Play Moor Skate Moor to pursue improvements to the children's play park at the top of Foreland Road and the introduction of a skate park. We are now supporting the group to help make this happen.


We are also pursuing other opportunities to help the local community achieve their aspirations.
