Mates ‘N’ Dates is a friendship network (Established over 10 years ago) for adults with learning disabilities living in and around Oxfordshire. 

We offer greater opportunities for social activities with the chance of forming friendships and relationships, in a supported environment.

Members tell us the project makes a huge difference in their lives; giving them a unique chance to: access a range of experiences they wouldn’t be able to access otherwise,.they feel the project helps them with their confidence and self-esteem. The events are organised in such a way that they no longer feel frightened, unsafe, judged or isolated. Instead they report feeling happier, valued and optimistic about their lives.

This work wouldn’t be possible without the dedicated support of our volunteers who get involved in all aspects of the project.

People with learning disabilities want to;

  • Be the same as everybody else. This means they want to be social and meet new people and make friends. This is a basic human right, and that is why Mates ‘N’ Dates was created, to help make this a reality for people.
  • Make choices about what they do, where they go, and who they spend time with, just like everyone else does. This is why Mates ‘N’ Dates members tell us what kind of activities they want, and then we try and help you facilitate those activities.

We have a team of members, staff, and volunteers, who meet up every other month, to share ideas, and talk about ways to run Mates ‘N’ Dates better, all members (old and new) are welcome to these planning meetings.
