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/Aberdeenshire, Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire. 

There is a short application form to complete, followed by a
chat with a Dates-n-Mates colleague. Then we collect two short
references. These references are to confirm eligibility (over 18, with a
learning disability) and to ensure safe guarding for all members.
