How to make friends


You may want to stay in touch with friends from school or you might look forward to making new friends in new places.

Exchanging phone numbers or email address is a good way to keep in touch with your friends. You could invite them to your house or visit them at theirs. Always make sure you stay safe, tell someone where you’re going, who you’re with and what time you’ll be back.

You can make friends by going to clubs, starting a hobby or at college or work. To find out about clubs and groups in your area for young people with additional needs check out the Service Finder Database or contact us.

You may need support from your family, carer or Personal Assistant to access activities or maintain your friendships. Talk to them about what you would like to do and how they can help.

Making friends is hard!

Friends and relationships are an important part of growing up. As you get older our relationships with people grow and we can choose the people we spend time with. There will be some people that you like more than others and some who you don’t like at all – it‘s your choice!

Friends are important part of life and develop over time. Friends are there to share good times, bad times, offer support, advice and have lots of laughs and fun with too!
