Learning disability week Scotland 2021
get2gether is delighted to be working with SCLD as part of the 2021 Learning Disability week, which will take place from 10th to 16th May.
This year the focus of the learning disability week is on relationships and we feel particularly excited because at get2gether that is the essence of what we do.
We provide opportunities for adults with disabilities to meet each other in safe, ordinary, accessible venues to form friendships and more intimate relationships.
During lockdown the get2gether community has thrived online, offering up to 6 fun zoom and Facebook meetings every week. We are also hosting regular opportunities to talk about sex and take part in a course designed to give participants robust coping mechanisms to help alleviate anxiety, depression and other emotional issues.
During the LD week we are offering online sessions on ‘Love Languages’, let’s talk about sex, Live your life course taster, Love dedications, Big date night and a session for couples to come together and share their experiences.
All of our sessions are being hosted by adults with disabilities.
We are so excited to have this opportunity and hope to meet you at one of our sessions.
