This group means everything to me. Thanks to it I have met some lovely people and it has helped build my confidence.
Tash, Love4Life member
Love4Life is a friendship and dating network for people with learning disabilities and autism. We organise workshops and social events that help you make friends and build relationships in a relaxed atmosphere.
We provide life-changing opportunities for people with autism and learning disabilities to build lasting friendships and relationships.
From clubbing, karaoke and festivals to bowling, drama and sports, members can choose which events suit them, and there is always a good range of choice.
Membership costs £10 a month. For some events, such as meals out or the cinema, there will be an extra cost, however other events and all of our workshops are free.
Join Love4Life and improve your social life
As a Love4Life member you will meet other members at organised group events. Our members are friendly and welcoming, so you will get to know them and you might meet someone that you would like to date. If two members decide that they would like to go on a date, we provide a trained chaperone for up to three dates in order to support a safe dating experience.
We organise a wide range of events – and members are always suggesting new event and activity ideas, so there is a wide range of activities to get involved with. These include: bowling, clubbing, karaoke, movie nights, pamper days, parties and proms, picnics and restaurants, pub nights, shopping trips, sports activities, theatre and music.
You can join us for our independent living workshops throughout the year such as cooking, health and wellbeing, friendships and relationships, CV writing, money management, travel training and sex education.
