Having a buddy can help you to develop confidence and independence.

You must be a member of Luv2meetU with a learning disability to apply. You must be aged 18 or over.

All buddies receive training. They also give us two references so that we know about their background, and they are DBS checked.

If you are interested contact Luv2meetU and they will send you a form.

Once you have sent your form back you will be matched with a volunteer who shares your interests. Luv2MeetU you will arrange a first meeting. At the first meeting a Luv2meetU staff member will be there too.

If you both get on you and your buddy can decide on what activities you'd like to do together and how often you meet.
