A dating agency designed to give adults with learning disabilities a better chance of finding love is set to be launched near Herne Bay.

Care worker Holly Leadbetter decided to create Aiding Love after witnessing the difficulties many of her clients experience when trying to meet new people.

She says that, currently, adults with learning disabilities living across the district have few opportunities to socialise with new groups of people and meet potential suitors.

“A lot of them want relationships, but find it hard to meet people as they tend to socialise with the same people,” she said.

“A few of them have applied for a few dating services, but there’s nothing really for them in this area.

“We’ve got one client who’s applied to The Undateables a couple of times.

“They didn’t apply to it because they wanted to be on television, they applied to it because they wanted to meet someone and have a person to share their lives with.”
