Member Social Events
Each Dates-n-Mates branch offers a regular programme of social events and activities for members in their local community.
Events may include (but are not limited to) bowling, dinner, pub nights, discos, karaoke or dancing. All activities provide an accessible, safe and fun environment to develop meaningful connections with other people.
Members play an active role in choosing the activities their branch host by regularly suggesting ideas and feedback.
Please note: Current Covid-19 restrictions are limiting in-person events to smaller numbers than usual.
These activities included online discos, quizzes, games nights, chats, cooking classes and karaoke.
Dates-n-Mates remained passionate and committed to providing opportunities to socialise and feel connected and included, while everyone needed to socially distance.
As we ease out of restrictions, with in-person social events returning, Dates-n-Mates plan to continue some online events to run alongside usual activity. Members can therefore connect with others outside of their local area, digitally.
