We offer support to all our members to help them develop a social circle and sustain lasting friendships and relationships.
Our Members are able to experience and enjoy a number of regular leisure and social events each month.
Using ordinary, everyday venues in member’s local area we connect members to their community. This will help to build their confidence and encourage members to use these venues without dm2 events in the future.
At our events we give members an opportunity to get involved in organising and planning the dm2 events that they want. Some members have formed lovely relationships and with the help of the dm2 team, have met up outside of the dm2 events, going for a drink and getting to know each other a little better.
Some comments from dm2 members on how they feel about dm2:
‘I really like coming to dm2 events as I get to meet other members’
‘The dm2 staff always join in and get us up to dance’
‘I like the disco’s and going for meals’
‘I have made new friends and like going to the bowling and chatting to them’
