Join Luv2meetU, get out and about and make friends
Luv2meetU will help you get out and about and try new things and visit different places. It will give you the chance to meet new people, make friends and develop relationships if you choose.
We will support your journey to achieve your goals in life becoming more involved in your local community, learning new skills, widening your circle of friends and signposting you to different opportunities and services.
What sort of things can I do?
Luv2meetU could help you be more active and healthier by joining in a range of supported leisure activities in your community such as walking, bowling, sporting activities and nights out.
Events are based on feedback received from you. You can be involved in helping plan activities.
We also run a variety of different educational workshops such as staying safe, relationships, mental health and wellbeing, as well as some fun events such as cooking, yoga and dance.
This is part of the Luv2meetU service and will allow you the opportunity to access an exciting range of national virtual events, giving you the chance to meet new people and make friends across the UK.
You will access online events using a range of digital platforms such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and social media including Facebook.
When will activities take place?
Both online events and face-to-face activities in your local community will take place at varied times, including outside of standard nine to five hours. This could be daytime, evening, weekdays and weekends to give you as much choice as possible.
The safety of our members is very important to Luv2meetU. All staff and volunteers are DBS checked and fully trained. If you would like more information on our safety policy please contact us.
Statistics show that around 50% of people with learning disabilities feel isolated, and one in five say they do not have any friends, which can have serious consequences on both their mental and physical health. But up and down the country we’ve been trying to change that.
Luv2meetU brings over 400 people with learning disabilities together throughout the year, helping them make friends, be part of a community and have more choice in life.
You can help people with learning disabilities live the life they choose by making a donation today.
How much does Luv2meetU cost?
To access the Luv2meetU service will cost £10 per month to be paid by setting up a regular standing order with your bank. This will also give you access to the Luv2meetU Online so you can participate in virtual events at no extra cost.
In addition, we will charge you £5 per event attended in your local community, which will be chargeable on the day of the event. If possible pay by debit or credit card, however there will be an option to pay cash.
You will also need to pay for the activity itself unless this is advertised as a free event. This could be food and drink, cinema tickets or transport to and from events.
If you need support to travel to and from events we will discuss the options open to you.
If you require one-to-one support you will need to have this available to you and bring a support worker/PA with you. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide this level of support through Luv2meetU.
Luv2meetU is keen to ensure everybody that wants to can join in. If you are struggling to afford to join please contact us to discuss how and if we may be able to help you.Find out more about joining Luv2meetU
