Gig Buddies Sydney and the NDIS

We’ve recently heard from a number of participants wishing to include Gig Buddies Sydney in their NDIS plan.

Gig Buddies Sydney can be incorporated into a participants’ NDIS plan if they have either ‘Increased Social and Community Participation’ (Capacity Building) or ‘Assistance with Social and Community Participation’ (Core Supports) as a line item.

Gig Buddies Sydney charges participants' NDIS plans for three hours a month. This amount covers many of the backend costs that enable the project to continue, including expenses associated with volunteer training, the vetting of volunteers, and the facilitating of social events and initial pairing meetings.

For further information regarding the cost breakdown please refer to our NDIS FAQ page.

Gig Buddies Sydney still accepts participants who are currently not receiving NDIS funding. We only ask that, should a plan fall into place at a later date, the project is taken into consideration.

This matter will be discussed during the initial meeting between gig buddy and Gig Buddies Sydney staff.

Should you have any further questions or require clarification on any NDIS matters relating to Gig Buddies Sydney, we can be contacted via phone (02 9419 6951) or email:
