Dates-n-Mates deliver interactive workshops to help develop our member’s understanding, skills, independence, and confidence.
All workshops provide guidance, discussion and interactive activities and centre around a variety of topics relating to friendships and relationships.
Some of our regular workshop’s topics across Scotland include:
- Confidence Building
- Communication skills for meeting new people
- Dating – from first date success to handling rejection
- Boundaries and consent
- Internet safety / digital inclusion
- Sexuality education
- Wellbeing and anti-stress techniques
- Human Rights
Our team are trained to deliver this training and often have external experts involved too. Members can request new workshop ideas to their local teams.
Dates-n-Mates members are also offered training in various volunteer roles such as co-hosting events and being a ‘friendly face’ to new members. This allows Dates-n-Mates members to help shape the charity and gain valuable new skills.”
