These are my top tips Make small talk at parties. Find social activities. If you live in Surrey I would contact the Mary Frances Trust. Or telephone your local council to see what is on offer. Find a common topic about a shared mutual interest or hobby or skill too. Take it from there. What is your hobby? Do you enjoy gardening or not? Are you a gym member? Focus on your strengths. Sign up for a activity or club for disabled folks as well. Your local library should have information on learning opportunities within the area. Research what’s on offer locally. Have a look at the council website. Start a conversation with someone at the gym. See what options do exist for finding a job. Look at organisations that can offer help. If you are at a party smile. Make eye contact. Say hello. Be friendly. Ask questions. Are there any courses you could enrol upon or not? Ask to see if your local college can help you study something. Check on their website or give them a call. Or email them instead. Be brave.
