We're always looking at ways to improve Gig Buddies.
As such, we’re calling on our community of buddies, supporters and volunteers to share their thoughts on our social events.
What motivates you to attend our events? What puts you off? How far would you be willing to travel? Do you only attend free gigs?
It’s easy for us to go into solution mode rather than ask for the views of those who directly benefit from being part of the project. We want your feedback. We can only make improvements or come up with changes if we hear back from you.
We want to hear from buddies, their support networks and volunteers. This survey is aimed at those based in Sydney and on the Central Coast. You are not required to share any personal information.
Help us improve Gig Buddies by filling out the following survey. Load up the link below to share your thoughts on our social gatherings.

Sing your hearts out
This week we invite buddies to join us online for a group karaoke session.
Taking place on Thursday (24/3), this is your chance to sing alongside your fellow buddies. We'll load up your song choices, ready for everyone to have a go.
In addition to Thursday’s group karaoke, we also invite buddies to connect with us at 4pm tomorrow (Tuesday 22/3) for our weekly chat. To attend get in touch via text: 0422 061 990 or Facebook Messenger.

Looking for love?
Our friends from Northern Pictures, makers of hit TV shows Love on the Spectrum and Employable Me, have been in touch.
They are working on something new for 2022 and they’re appealing for people who are looking for love.
They’re looking for single people who may have a disability. If you or someone you know might be interested, get in touch with the producers. Send an email with a brief description of yourself (and a photo and contact number) to email@example.com
