How can I help my son to make friends?

Two months ago I  moved back to England with my 19 year old son, who uses a wheelchair to get around, and is unable to speak.  He is dependent on me for all his personal care, but is totally aware and interested in what's going on around him.  He loves being in a swimming pool, going out for coffee, and people & traffic watching.   My question really is how do I help my son to make friends - how do we meet people with similar abilities and interests?  How do I find out what's available for him in terms of social activities, if anything?  
I really would like all the advice and information anyone can give, as I've lived in England before, but never with a disabled person, and it's a different ball game!
Thanks for reading this, and hope to chat with you soon.
