All online games will take place via Zoom. For information on how to use Zoom, load up the following easy read guide written by Learning Disability Wales. Alternatively, click here to check out our 'how to use Zoom' video.

We’ve also written an easy read guide for Kahoot!, the app used for the Gig Buddies Sydney pub quiz. Click here to read.


To play the Gig Buddies Sydney pub quiz buddies will need access to two devices, one to run Zoom and the other to enable the Kahoot! app. For example, buddies could access Zoom via a desktop computer/laptop and load up the Kahoot! app on a smartphone or tablet.


Please note, questions for the Gig Buddies Sydney pub quiz will be updated weekly and we encourage participants to only attend one quiz event each week. Buddies are, however, welcome to attend both Virtual Bingo events.

Shopping made easier


Gig Buddies Sydney news aside, for those not in the know NDIS participants now have priority access to supermarket home delivery services.

The NDIA sent a unique home delivery access code to all participants by SMS or email earlier this week.


Use your code when placing online orders for home delivery services at participating supermarkets: Woolworths, Coles, IGA / Foodland IGA, Foodworks and Harris Farm.

If you are an NDIS participant and have not received a code call 1800 800 110 or visit the Priority home delivery services webpage to learn more.

Every day’s a school day


And if you have a bit more time on your hands due to the Coronavirus, why not take this opportunity to upskill yourself?


TAFE NSW are offering a number of free short courses that can be completed in just days or weeks, offering practical skills and experiences across a range of industries.


For more information, click here to access the TAFE NSW website.

And finally….


As we enter week four of the lockdown, we’re reminding participants that if you’re experiencing increased levels of social isolation to please get in touch. Buddies can text or call us on either 0422 061 990 or 0412 145 819. We’re here to chat.


And as we’ve been saying for the past few weeks, stay safe, stay indoors and look out for each other.
