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;
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.
