information DESCRIPTION

At get2gether, we believe that everyone has the right to love and friendship. We also believe that people meeting each other should be easy, fun and accessible.

That’s why we arrange social activities for adults with disabilities in safe and friendly places in Edinburgh and the Lothians. Our members tell us what they’re interested in – and that’s what we do.

From ping pong tournaments, to the panto, speed dating, dancing and meals out, we’re there!

We want our members to get the most out of living in Edinburgh and the Lothians and lead a self-determined life. get2gether believes increased independence and resilience makes us all feel better. People should be able to lead the life they want.

Our approach

People with disabilities have the same emotional experiences as everyone else.

We use a mentoring and coaching approach to encourage adults with disabilities to self-reflect, take responsibility for their own actions and to lead their own lives.

We run events, develop courses and create other opportunities that enable social connection and personal development. Our approach demonstrates that we can expect more of ourselves and of everyone around us.

Membership is free, you just need to sign up!
