"Thank you happily dating I have found my perfect match"

Simon, happily member

"Happily dating has proved to be the most wonderful discovery. My daughter has found a wonderful boyfriend and friend. From having virtually no friends, she now has an active social life, and is subsequently much happier"

Sarah, Mother of happily member

"What I like about happily is I can meet new friends who understand me and I understand them""

Jennifer, happily member

"It's been really good, one of the best dating agencies I have ever come across for people with learning disabilities"

James, happily member


Who we are

Hello I’m Helena, the founder of happily.

happily is a family run friendship and dating project which I started with my mother Corriene. The idea of happily was born from my first-hand experience of helping my younger sister who has learning disabilities to find love and friendship. I felt there was a real need for a secure place where she could meet genuine people so I launched happily.

Having previously worked with adults with learning disabilities and autism, I am passionate about supporting individuals both personally and professionally.

My mother Corriene is a developmental psychologist with a doctorate in Psychology.

Most importantly we want to help you live life happily!
