Couple meet through charity’s learning disabled friendship service

A couple who met through a friendship service for learning disabled and autistic individuals have shared their happiness at finding one another through Luv2meetU (L2mU).

Mags, 24, and 32-year-old Kieran, from Denbighshire in North Wales, first met around three years ago at a L2mU-hosted social event, soon after the service had started up in the area.

“We started off as friends – I thought Kieran was kind and caring,” says Mags.

The pair have now been together for nearly two years and are “very happy”, she adds.

L2mU, run by learning disability charity Hft, is a service for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism and strives to help people improve their overall health and well-being by supporting them to get out and about to different places and try new things.

For just £10 a month, club members can access a combination of virtual and face-to-face activities and opportunities (though access to the latter depends on what is available locally), paying an additional £5 for in-person events.

Gemma Milburn, National Virtual Coordinator for Hft, says: “For Mags and Kieran, L2mU played a vital role as, without it, they simply wouldn’t have met. They live in separate counties and were both quite socially isolated before this, so L2MU really did play the leading role in their relationship.”

Both Mags and Kieran have embraced the opportunities available through L2mU since becoming club members.

Mags says: “I love having more friends and being more social. I have more friends now than I’ve had before, and trying new things at events help me to feel more self-confident.”

“I liked Mags as soon as I met her. She’s kind, caring, helpful and fun. We’re happy living as we are at the moment but I’d like to move in together in the future,” enthuses Kieran. 

As for what’s next on the cards for the happy couple? “We’re happy to carry on as we are for now,” says Mags. “We’re happy, and we will carry on living with our parents, as this works well for both of us.”
