A fortnightly/monthly disco for adults with disabilities in order to make friends and form relationships

Dewsbury Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

I would like to organise a regular night out for adults with disabilities as there are no organisations offering vulnerable people the chance to make friends or form relationships. I would like to see adults that cannot access public services enjoy a regular night out with their parents/carers and be integrated into society more. Maybe a function room be hired that has a bar and a dj so that disabled people have the same quality of life as "normal" adults. They would be in a safe environment surrounded by people with similar problems and not made to feel embarassed, intimidated or anxious.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide a safe environment for adults with disabilities

Why it's a great idea:

There are no organisations within the local or surrounding areas to allow adults with disabilities to have a night out without feeling intimidated or anxious. There is nowhere for them to form relationships and meet friends on a regular basis in a social environment.

Steps to get it done:

  • Find a venue to allow adults with disabilities to enjoy a night out on a regular basis

This would greatly improve the lives of many people with disabilities to live a relatively normal life.
