Is Nice to Meet Ya just a dating website?
It’s much more, actually! An entire community of events and activities where people with a learning disability and autism can safely connect with others like them.
How might Nice 2 Meet Ya help my autistic child, friend or loved one?
It can be difficult to support your child, friend or sibling, for instance, in making new friendships or to date – not because you do not want to support them but often because you have probably spent a long time trying hard to have their health or social care needs met and you might not be sure of the best way to help them.
At Nice 2 Meet Ya, your loved one is in good hands! We aim to provide a safe space, promote self-care and increase self-esteem – helping members connect with people who share similar interests and this is merely the first step in helping them develop healthy friendships and relationships.
How much does it cost to become a member at Nice 2 Meet Ya and how can I pay?
We have three annual subscription-based memberships. The introductory cost of standard membership is £70 per year. The enhanced membership is £100 per year and the full membership is £130 per year. The membership fee will be paid before you become a member. We accept card payments, bank transfers and cash. After this time, you can choose to continue your membership or switch to a different one.
How do you help autistic people find the right match?
We’re much more than your average dating club. Members are matched based on their interests, personality and age, as well as their relationship goals. We work with members to build realistic relationship goals. We show you profiles and you can decide if you would like to meet the person or not and we will listen to all your feedback when you see profiles or meet people.
I’m interested in becoming a member myself – how do I do that?
Becoming a member is easy at Nice 2 Meet Ya – simply fill out our membership form and someone from our team will contact you shortly.
Once I apply online, what happens next?
Once we have received your membership application, a member of our team will contact you to discuss your application and arrange a consultation if you choose an enhanced or full membership.
What areas do you cover?
We’re currently the only friendship and dating club in Hertfordshire helping autistic people and those with learning disabilities find friendship and romance. We may also be able to help you become a member if you live just outside of Hertfordshire. Please contact us to get started.
Why do you need a letter from a professional?
A reference letter is required from a professional who knows you such as a GP, care manager, support worker or social worker. This is only to make sure that the group is suitable for you.
The letter needs to be written on headed paper or from a work email address, and it just needs to confirm that you have a learning disability or autism, and that they feel that Nice 2 Meet Ya is an appropriate service for you.
