dates-n-mates is Scotland’s national dating and friendship agency run by and for adults with learning difficulties.

In 2007 Altrum, a group of like-minded support organisations, recognised that there was a need for a specific agency to help people make friends and find love. This resulted in the launch of dates-n-mates in 2008 hosted by C-Change Scotland.

We have approximately 150 members spread across the country and offer:

  • Opportunities to make new friends
  • Support to improve confidence and build personal relationships
  • Invitations to 4-6 social events and activities every month, ranging from creative workshops to talent contests to club nights.
  • Quarterly newsletter
  • Information on other activities, organisations and things that may be of interest
  • Workshops for social independence
  • Supported first dates
  • Volunteer opportunities to work with us and help other members
