The aim of 'Spark' is to set up a dating agency for adults aged 18 and over that have additional needs/disabilities.
The agency will give people with additional needs the opportunities to meet like minded people for social meetings and dates that could possibly lead to romance.
The business will create profiles of members and aim to find matches for them.
Intially, there will be speed dating evenings for people to increase their awareness of what Spark has to offer. In addition, when Spark has enough members a website will be created.
However, Spark will be looking for a more personal dating service where members can speak directly to staff regarding their matches, chaperones will be provided for meetings arranged through the agency.
Staff will work with each client closely, learning about them as individuals - age, things they like to do, the person they hope to meet and so on, then all matches will be found based on this information.
In addition, there will also be classes run for clients to develop skills in their social communication and confidence building to make meetings with others more successful.
