ABOUT US

Going out to see bands, clubbing, or seeing friends is part of everyday life for many people. However, if you have a learning disability you may need support to do this. 

​Gig Buddies Sydney pairs volunteers with people with learning disability from all over Sydney to go to events together.

HOW IT WORKS

Gig Buddies Sydney pairs buddies based on mutual interests - such as music tastes, sport and hobbies - and other factors such as location and age. Once paired, gig buddies go to events together once or twice a month for a year.
