Current opportunities

The recent lockdown and ongoing COVID restrictions have been tough for members of Dates-n-Mates, a project that helps people with learning disabilities to access safe and appropriate social events. People with learning disabilities can be particularly at risk of feeling lonely and becoming socially isolated and recent events and restrictions on social activities and many of our members have felt increasingly anxious about keeping in touch with their friends. It is not possible in the current climate for dates-n-mates to have large groups of people going out to a pub, nightclub or other social setting so we are making use of digital platforms to allow our members to keep in touch safely. As an Online Event Volunteer, you will help host online events on Zoom and private Facebook Groups. It’s all about helping members to have a safe, enjoyable and friendly time online– and that means it’s a fun, relaxed and sociable role. Ideally you would generally host the same events so that our members get to know you, but that will depend on when and how often you are available.

It is not possible in the current climate for dates-n-mates to have large groups of people going out to a pub, nightclub or other setting so they have developed a Friendship Matching service where small groups (2-4 people) will come together to meet online via Zoom. As a volunteer chaperone, you will join one of these groups and help the members to meet and interact while they’re together. It’s all about helping them to have a safe, enjoyable and friendly time – and that means it’s a fun, relaxed and sociable role.
