Out of This World - 7 - 9.30pm

Wednesday 29th May

OUT OF THIS WORLD is an evening for single people aged 25-35, where you might meet new friends, find romance or even come first in a quiz! The evening is autism friendly, suitable for people with mild to moderate learning difficulties and designed to include disabled people and people with sensory issues. There will be activities and a quiz, to help everyone get to know each other and a heap of allergy aware snacks and drinks. If you want someone to accompany you, there will be a separate area for them to wait and have a drink if you don’t want them cramping your style. And best of all, it’s FREE!”.

The event is organised by Charlotte Chester and has been inspired by her brother Alex. Charlotte believes that everyone deserves the chance to be in a relationship and is organising OUT OF THIS WORLD to bring a bit more romance to Sheffield. She says “all of us find the world of dating stressful, but some people have difficulties that add a whole extra layer of stress. If a venue isn’t easy for you to get into, if there’s too much background noise to hear properly or if you’re not confident with the route to get there then it makes meeting new people that much harder. At OUT OF THIS WORLD, we’re getting rid of as many of those extra stresses as we can – after all, flirting is already difficult enough!”

More information is available on the Out of this World website

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
