Gig Buddies is a project that pairs up people with and without learning disabilities to be friends and to go to music and other events together. The project got started in March 2013 in the East Sussex area. They’re part of the Stay Up Late group of projects.
They regularly recruit new volunteers to buddy up with a person who has a learning disability. At the moment, they’re particularly looking for volunteers in the Eastbourne and Hastings area in East Sussex.
