Interactive sessions to develop confidence, communication, relationships skills and independence.


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
  • Relationships
  • 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.”
