Frequently asked questions

Can I join if I have a boyfriend or girlfriend?

Yes, absolutely! Love4Life isn’t just about going on dates, it is a great place just to find friends.

Can I join just to make friends?

Again, yes! It is completely your choice if you want to date or not.

Do I have to come to all the Love4Life events?

You can come to as many or as few Love4Life events as you want to! When you become a member, you will receive an events list that will tell you all the events we have available for the next two months – and then you can choose what you would like to attend.

I have seen you put on shows with Love4Life members, do I have to take part?

No, you can get involved with as much or as little as you feel comfortable with. Although, you’d be surprised how many people love to get involved with our shows!

What workshops do you have?

We run independent living workshops throughout the year which include cooking, health and wellbeing, friendship and relationships, cv writing, money management, travel training and sex education.

Can I attend with my carer?

We encourage people to attend independently but if you require additional support then you will need to bring a carer with you.

Can I join if I have a criminal conviction?

If you have a criminal conviction, we will ask you for more information about this. If we have concerns, we will ask you to complete a DBS and we will make a decision based on this.
