Love4Life bringing friendship, fun and love to Southampton
14th April 2022
Love4Life is a lifechanging network for people with learning disabilities and has been supporting members to build friendships and find love for more than five years.
With more than 200 members, which is growing every week, Love4Life has now expanded our reach into Southampton, so we can reach even more people with learning disabilities and autism.
Love4Life manager Hayley said: “I am very excited for the expansion of Love4Life into Southampton. Giving people with learning disabilities and autism the opportunity to make friends and find love is at the heart of Love4Life.
“The right to a social life is what we stand for, and at Love4Life we help to reduce loneliness and isolation meaning members can thrive. Love4Life will be providing over 15 social events a month in Southampton for people to enjoy such as meals out, bowling, discos and much more. We will also be holding two workshops a month covering topics such as social media safety, dating and what makes a good friend. We can’t wait to see what the future brings!”
Love4Life has had a huge impact for so many people. Tasha, who has met her fiancé through Love4Life, said: “Love4Life has made me so much happier and more confident. I have so many friends now who care about me and like me for who I am – and I have found the boy of my dreams. I have got the best life ever now.”
If you want to join Love4Life in Southampton, our coordinator Emma will be on hand to help. You can apply here.
We’re looking for Love4Life volunteers
Love4Life couldn’t run without our amazing and dedicated volunteers, and with the recent expansion we are looking for even more creative and enthusiastic people to join Team Love4Life.
Love4Life volunteer manager Jim said: “Love4Life really is the best volunteering job around. It’s a fresh, vibrant network of people who are so keen to socialise, make new connections and possibly find love. To be able be a part of that is just amazing, our volunteers keep our activities going so members can have the same opportunities that so many of us take for granted.
“Even if you can only give two hours a month, that makes such a huge difference for our members and the experiences we can offer. We understand your time is precious and by volunteering you are supporting Love4Life to continue.
