The industry body for UK dating agencies, The Dating Agency Association, has devised a national Dating Safely Campaign in order to provide free information to single people, and clear professional guidelines to dating agencies, in order to promote a cultural shift in the way we think about personal safety. The Dating Agency Association has set out clear guidelines for both single people, and dating agencies across the country, to ensure that the very human desire to find love no longer leaves single people vulnerable to exploitation and violence.
Your search for a new partner is the beginning of an exciting journey; however, ensuring safety and security within your personal life is essential. Alongside The Dating Agency Association’s stringent Code of Practice – which includes compulsory photo identification validation on all clients - we require our member agencies to issue their clients with our Dating Safely Guidelines through our national Dating Safely Campaign. We expect our member agencies to encourage a culture of well-being and respect between clients within an honest and transparent environment. Our Dating Safely Campaign Guidelines helps to protect clients beyond the point of an initial personal introduction.
