On the 11th November we were so excited and proud to officially launch Gig Buddies!

We were joined by Moon Music, Black Moon Dj’s and James Joseph Downey aka Ri. The place was packed and the tunes and craic was 90! We can’t wait to get the volunteer applications in and sort out our first Gig Buddies gig!

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.
