There are currently over 150 members in London.
Lots of members have achieved their goal of friendships and relationships and have happily moved on.
So we now have room for lots of new members!
It costs fifteen pounds a year to join for friendship and dating. As a member you will be invited to all events. You will be able to meet people on a one to one basis or in a group. There will be no pressure on you to do anything. Stars in the Sky will support you on your first one to one meeting. Some events will be free some will cost a small amount of money.
*Theatre and music nights.
*Picnics and restaurant meals.
Stars in the Sky do not provide transport except for some of the larger events. We will try and support people to get to events. A popular method is to match members who live in the same area so they can support each other to events. We will provide maps and travel guides for each event. You are welcome to bring your own support to our events.
Stars in the Sky is a dating and friendship service for adults with learning difficulties.
To join you have to:
*Have a learning disability/difficulty.
*Provide a reference.
*Be over the age of 18.
All adults with a learning difficulty can join. Stars in the Sky aims not to discriminate on:
Download an application form and send it back to us along with a reference from your professional support service- carers, key-workers, care support managers, social workers, therapists, support workers, GPs.
We appreciate that some applicants do not necessarily also get support from the above professionals, therefore only as last resort we sometimes accept references from: teachers, religious leaders, work managers, parents, mentors (with your application you would then also need to attach a disability registration letter.)
We will then invite you to our office in Tottenham for an induction meeting where we can find out more about you and you can find out more about Stars in the Sky. There’s no need to be nervous about this meeting, we will make you feel at home.
After your induction, if you want to join, you can give us your membership fee (currently £15 per year) and you shall become a member.
*The reference must include your name, job title, company address and phone number.
*All references must be typed on letter headed paper and signed.
In the reference you must state:
*You are satisfied that the applicant has a learning disability.
*To the best of your knowledge the applicant will not be a potential threat or danger to themselves or other members.
*You would like to recommend the applicant to Stars in the Sky. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT EACH OF THE ABOVE REQUIREMENTS IS CONFIRMED IN WRITING.
