Want to make a real difference to someone’s life, while doing the things you enjoy.
Join us as a volunteer buddy!
Luv2meetU is a friendship and dating agency for adults with a learning disability. We support our members to make friends, share interests and develop relationships.
As a volunteer buddy you’ll give one-to-one support to Luv2meetU members through sharing a similar hobby or passion - helping them to develop confidence and independence.
What’s involved? Buddies are there to support someone to have fun doing what they love - whether it’s playing sports, going to gigs or popping out for coffee. In practice this might mean meeting up once a month or so, and helping with travel and practical tasks; it depends on the member’s needs. To be a buddy you must be aged 18+.
Contact us using the details below. We’ll ask you to fill in an application form and provide references, and meet you for an informal chat. We’ll also help you to arrange a DBS check and training. Once all the admin is out of the way, we’ll match you with a Luv2meetU member near you who shares your interests. We’ll provide all the support you need, including reasonable out-of-pocket expenses for the time you spend with your buddy.
