Gig Buddies

Description

The Gig Buddies project aims to make volunteering easier for people in Sussex by enabling volunteers to go to gigs they’d already probably be going to anyway, but with someone with a learning disability. This means they’ll be sharing their passions with each other and be able to fit their volunteering around their other commitments.

Buddies matches adults who have a learning disability and/or autism to a volunteer who has similar interests, to go to events together that you both love.

We want to enable people with learning disabilities and/or autism to enjoy all the great things going on in their community, especially live music. 

Gig Buddies pairs up people with and without learning disabilities (and/or autism) to be friends and to go to events together.

Gig Buddies people come from all over Sussex, including Brighton and Hove, Worthing, Chichester, Lewes, Uckfield, Eastbourne and Hastings.
