Gig Buddies is a befriending programme that pairs people with a learning disability with volunteers to go to events together. Buddies are paired based on mutual interests such as music tastes, hobbies, sports etc, and other factors such as location and age. This could be anything from going to see live music, the theatre or going for coffee, whatever your “gig” is. Once paired, Gig Buddies go to events together once or twice a month.
Gig Buddies also organise regular social events and group outings to local and public events like open mic nights, music festivals, etc. These events are an opportunity for our volunteers & members to meet new people and catch up whilst enjoying live local entertainment.
