Socialising Buddies

The world holds so many great opportunities and here at Socialising Buddies Ltd, we believe everyone has the right to enjoy them!

We provide a range of services to meet a variety of needs. From 1:1 support for children and young people (4yrs+) and for vulnerable adults to social group outings – we aim to provide you with a unique service that fits around you.

We’re here to support YOU to do the things that YOU want to do.

Our aim is to support individuals to make new friends and meet new people, develop choice making skills, develop self-esteem and social skills, independence skills and visit new places. Everyone has the right to have the right to be treated as an individual with equal rights and equal respect, we believe in to challenge discrimination.

Buddy Service

We offer a high-quality Buddy Service that offers flexibility to meet your requirements. We can provide you with 1:1 support to cover one-off events such as nightclubbing, shopping, cinema etc – or we can offer regular hours for as little or as often as you need*

We know that getting out & about isn’t always easy – that’s why we are here to support you in getting out & enjoying yourself! Whether it’s a day out you’re looking for or holiday cover – wherever you want to go we are here to support you all the way! Our Buddy Service is flexible & designed to fit around you (subject to availability). We work all hours – so if you’re wanting to stay out until 3 am at the pubs or an early start at the gym – if we have the hours available, we can be there! We can also offer support to cover times when those who usually support you are away or are temporarily unable to offer the level of support you require (e.g. family holidays etc). There is no need for a contract (although we do charge a minimum of 2.5hours per booking) – we work as and when you need us and you are not required to sign up to any commitment!

The current rate of support starts at £16.50 p/hr. Contact us for more details. T&C’s available on request.

Social Group Outings

Every week, we run various social group outings on a Thursday between 7pm-9pm. Our outings give you the opportunity to come and meet new people & build new friendships – all while having fun! Our staff are there to support you throughout the evening – so there’s no need to bring a carer.

An example of some of the outings that we do are Bowling, Activity Nights, Meal & Quiz, Ambassadors and Isle Jump! We also, sometimes do bigger day trips further afield.

If you are not already registered with us, please contact us to get a registration form. There is no contract – you can book as little or as often as you like!

The average price of our outings is £31 – £35 and includes the activity + support for the evening.
