Dates-n-mates Membership

Dates-n-Mates is a membership project for adults with learning disabilities in Scotland. 

Becoming a member will give access to events and opportunities to develop meaningful friendships and relationships.

There are currently two membership options to consider:

Online-Only Membership

This membership is for people who might not live close to one of our local branches but they would like to join in on the online events.

It is £3 per month which includes access to all online events, chats and activities. And will allow access to one online friendship match.

This membership does not include in-person events or access to extra activities that the project may introduce.

Full Dates-n-Mates Membership

This is our main membership option which includes everything Dates-n-Mates offers to their members. 

Becoming a full member, at £5 per month, gives access to online events, in-person events, friendship matching, dating support and training workshops.


Membership Process and Eligibility

To become a Dates-n-mates member, you need to be over the age of 18 with a diagnosed learning disability.

Our local branches are in Glasgow, Renfrewshire, Aberdeen and Falkirk. However, you can become an online member regardless of where you live.

There is a short application form to complete, followed by a chat with a Dates-n-Mates staff member and the gathering of two simple references. These references are to confirm eligibility (over 18, with a learning disability) and to ensure safe guarding for all members.
