Outsiders to have new MS Group Chat on the Clubhouse

Outsiders attracts a large number of members with MS and some complain that they don’t get any support. So we decided they would enjoy supporting each other! Luckily our online Clubhouse has the facilities for this to happen and we look forward to seeing how members gain sexual confidence and feel much happier.

The Radio 5 live show called Dilemma today was brilliant

We were able to not only give advice on what to put in your online dating profile when on a dating site when you have a disability, but promote Outsiders in a very positive light. Hopefully it will bring us lots more members, fingers crossed.

The boy who was wanting this advice was told to have a dating buddy so that when he got turned down by a woman, he would have someone to cheer him up and keep him optimistic. One of our female members has now offered to be that buddy. We do have some wonderful members!
