Since its creation Hum Tum has put on over a thousand events, including Eid and Diwali evenings, cinema outings and restaurant meals. If a person we support has a particular hobby or interest they’d like to take part in with someone, we may be able to match them with a volunteer who enjoys the same things.Our buddying scheme allows people to share the activities they’re passionate about – whether it’s cycling, listening to music, or seeing a favourite football team play.Activities range from ice-skating and clubbing, to speed dating and bowling – members influence the activities from week to week.If two of our members want to go on a date, we are on hand to give advice.From singing in a choir to volunteering at a charity shop, we make sure the people we support are able to do the things they want to do wherever possible.We also know how important it is to be able to stay in touch with family and friends, so we support people to keep in contact with their loved ones, whether it’s through organising a Sunday lunch with friends, or Skyping a relative.At Soulful Encounters' disabled dating and community Web site, disabled individuals find real support, compassion, and friendship through our disabled community and disabled dating Web site.
There are so many apps and websites out there that one can use to find a date. I’ve not used any of them, mainly because I’m far too lazy to fill out some lengthy question and answer section or come up with a way to describe myself well enough to where I’d feel comfortable.
There are a number of options within Disabled Passions to help connect members, including the following: Disabled ‘Groups’ allow members to find others who share very specific interests / similarities.
Disabled Forums allow members to post on topics of interest.
We all want to be loved and accepted, and people with learning disabilities are no different.
But meeting new people, socialising and maintaining friendships can be difficult if you have trouble communicating, or getting out and about.
