Gig Buddies Belfast

 A project for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism to attend gigs with their buddy and be part of the Gig Buddies Belfast community!

 

Gig Buddies is a project that pairs adults with learning disabilities and/or autism with a volunteer, based on their shared interests, to build a friendship and attend monthly events together. The aim is to ensure adults with learning disabilities and/or autism feel confident when attending local venues so that they can enjoy all the great events happening in their community and be actively involved in making decisions about their own social lives. The project also endeavours to make volunteering easier as volunteers attend gigs they’d probably already be going to, but with their Gig Buddy. This allows volunteers to share their interests with their Buddy and easily manage volunteering alongside their other commitments.
