Coolest Date Ideas for Disabled People

Whether you are the one with a disability, or you are going on a date for the first time with someone who has a disability, you will be amazed at all of the fun outings that you can enjoy. A disability does not have to be the center of attention for the date. There are many different dates you can go on that will allow both of you to have a great time.  


Outdoor Concerts  


Music has always been a way for people to connect. It does not matter what type of concert you attend – a large staged event or a private outing.  You can enjoy the music and each other! Different types of music will bring on different moods.  Don’t stick to just one genre. Blues and jazz give the day a sultry feelwhile a classical concert may be more stimulating for conversation. The choices are endless, and the outcome most surely will be a day of fun.  




There is something surreal about going to an aquarium. An aquarium gives you many things to look at and talk about, and there are always opportunities to interact with the displays. Many aquariums have areas where you can touch different sea creatures, for example, or interact in some way. This is a great way to have a first date that is low pressure and gives you both something to explore and enjoy. It is also a great way to have a casual conversation if you are feeling nervous about being on the date.  


Historical Site or National Park  


Enjoy a day exploring a local historic site or national park. Most of these places have been upgraded to be accessible to people with disabilities. If you or your date are history buffs, it gives you a chance to share your passion or learn something new. If you love the outdoors, a national park will be a great place to explore and have a picnic. Too many people see these historic sites and parks and say, “one day I will visit.” Use this date as a reason to go and enjoy a day of doing something you always wanted to do while getting to know someone new 


Art Museum  


Art is as diversified as music. There are so many styles of artwork that you are bound to visit a museum that fits your tastes. Even if the artwork is not to your taste, visiting an art museum is a way to start a conversation and connect on a more intimate level. Being able to share opinions on a piece of artwork that you are viewing together creates a bond. If you both love art, go into an art district and look at the galleries or just window shop. You can stop at a café and have a wonderful discussion about what you saw.

Please note: VAT is removed in the checkout process

In the UK, disabled people do not have to pay VAT when buying certain disability aids and services (This can be claimed by friend or family member purchasing on their behalf). Not everything supplied to disabled people is necessarily zero-rated for VAT. Goods and services on which you do not have to pay VAT are usually known as 'zero-rated' or 'eligible for VAT relief.

Who is eligible for VAT relief?

You must be 'chronically sick or disabled' to qualify for VAT relief. The HMRC comment on this is as follows. A person is 'chronically sick or disabled' if they either:

VAT Relief on our Disability Aids

All products on the Aids for Mobility website are flagged with an option to claim VAT relief during Checkout if it applies to that item. When you add a zero-rated product or service to your Basket, you will be asked to tick a checkbox to confirm that you, or the person for whom you are buying the item, are eligible for VAT Relief.

How VAT relief works

If you are claiming VAT Relief you will be asked to complete an extra few questions during Checkout, where we will ask you to provide brief details of your disability and confirmation that the product is for 'personal or domestic use'. We will keep a record of this declaration along with your order details. You can then buy the product(s) in your Basket at a price that excludes VAT. You will be asked to make this declaration each time you place an order that includes zero-rated products. It is a legal requirement that we record this information for every order, and we apologise for the inconvenience.
