Mates n’ Dates is a specialist dating and friendship agency for adults with learning disabilities in Oxfordshire. People with learning disabilities want to be the same as everybody else; this means they want friends and maybe a partner. Mates n’ Dates provides an opportunity for adults with learning disabilities to meet new people and socialise at group events or on one-to-one dates.

 

We need volunteers to:

  • Encourage and support group members with learning disabilities to access dates, social groups and events in local communities.
  • Offer admin and fundraising support to help plan events and run the project from our office in Witney.

- Reliable and responsible

- A good communicator

- Patient

- Enthusiastic

- A ‘people person’

- Aware of, or willing to learn about, the challenges facing people with a learning   disability.

- Willing to undertake a DBS check

 

Benefits for you:

- A very fun and rewarding experience

- Experience working with people with learning disabilities

- Work related experience
