dates-n-mates is a dating and friendship agency for adults with learning disabilities. 

We have started a friendship matching programme, where we connect two members based on their interests, likes and dislikes. They meet on zoom, with  a staff member, to get to know each other. Its a great way for new members to very quickly connect with other people and develop friendships.

 

We run a monthly programme of events in mainstream venues for our members to meet other people, develop lasting friendships and in some cases, even find love.

 

We also run a number of Open events, which are open to both members and non-members, including an annual talent show, summer party, Christmas and Halloween Party, and a Valentines party.

 

We also run events in connection with what's going in the city, including trips to TRNSMT, Girls Day Out at the Sec, Comicon at the Sec, any sporting events (eg Common Wealth Games, Euros etc), Beer festivals, Masskaraoke in Geroge Square, and anything else that comes up in the course of the year.

We started face to face meet ups within government guidelines in May, and are meeting members in coffee shops, bars and parks for a catch up. We are inviting members who have been unable to access our Zoom activities. We are running a summer party in July. This is also an open event so all welcome - non members as well as members. In addition, we are running an Aberdeen 6th Birthday party on June 25th on zoom. 

 

In addition, we run free training workshops for members, including "What to say after Hello", "Friendly Face Training" and a few sexuality workshops.

Right now we are offering one months FREE TRIAL to all new members!
