1. Overview

Many people find dating and making friends difficult whatever their background and whether they have a disability or not. Whether that’s through lack of confidence, anxiety or social barriers, it can leave people feeling socially isolated.

There are a number of different ways to meet people and what suits one individual might not suit another. Some people prefer to go out to a social event while others may prefer to have initial contact using an online dating website. Although it can feel quite nerve wracking, sometimes it’s just a case of giving something a go.
