The power of the Companion Card

Last Tuesday (1/6) we hosted a Zoom information session about the NSW Companion Card. Thanks to everyone who attended.


We were fortunate to have Sophie Titmus, Project Officer with NSW Companion Card, lead the presentation. She informed attendees about the benefits of owning a card, while also raising awareness with those who may have never applied.

From a Gig Buddies perspective, we believe that the more people who have access to the Companion Card, the more opportunities participants get to head out and expand their social circles.

Go West


Last Friday (4/6) we headed west - travelling to Gregory Hills for our social event at Milky Lane.

It’s the furthest we’ve ever travelled to facilitate a gathering - thank you to everyone who joined us.
