Friend Pairing for Neurodiverse LGBTQIA+- South Aus

Here at Mingle Co we're all about throwing open the doors to fun and friendships for everyone! Our friend pairing events are like a big warm hug, specially crafted for neurodiverse adults that identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community. Here's what you can expect when you attend our event: A warm ambience where you can relax and be yourself. An opportunity to expand your social circle and make new friends. Each guest has a brief one-on-one conversation with potential friends to identify those with whom a friendship could develop. You will be given a clipboard to write the other guests names, all guests will rotate around the tables to have the opportunity to meet everyone. Self-diagnosed neurodivergent individuals & allies are welcomed to this event. No rejections, our focus is on creating an inclusive environment where everyone can connect and form friendships. A fun and engaging atmosphere with icebreaker cards to help you get to know one another. Professional and friendly event hosts who are dedicated to making your experience as enjoyable as possible. The activity lasts for just over 2 hours, where each guest has 8 -10 minutes to ask their new friend questions (toilet and drink breaks half way). Complimentary drinks on arrival, grazing platter to share and mingle (please e-mail event organiser if you have any special food requirements) On-site parking & security, wheel chair accessibility, accessible and gender neutral toilets. You're welcome to bring a support person (to help with your nerves). Hosts will email guests the following day with possible friend matches.
