Friends of Gig Buddies Central Coast
"You're in the right place"
We’re a disability support service based on the NSW Central Coast. At 3D, we love what we do. So if you’re looking for someone to support you in what you want to do, say firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re also about thinking outside the box. Our aim is to provide free resources and community opportunities for everyone. You don’t have to be a 3D client, or have an NDIS plan, or even a disability.
Because the best communities are inclusive. No more boxes. Whoever you are, wherever you are, you’re in the right place.

Bus Stop Films
Bus Stop Films come highly recommended from many gig buddies (participants) who have benefitted from their inclusive programs.
Bus Stop Films is a pioneering, not-for-profit organisation that uses filmmaking and the film industry to raise the profile of people living with disabilities and other marginalised groups, on both sides of the camera.
Through their Accessible Films Studies Program and the brilliant films they create, they provide a platform for the voices and stories of their participants to be shared around the world, whilst advocating for a more inclusive film industry and society at large.
Independent Dance Company
For the last seven years, Sydney-based independent company DirtyFeet has been opening up the world of contemporary dance.

Run annually, this five-session program brings the dance class and the thrill of performance to those affected by physical and intellectual conditions that would otherwise preclude them.
Quality custom promo products
We’re extremely passionate about making merch good!
We started out printing t-shirts for friends bands in our local scene. This grew slowly over time into the business we have today.
Now, our staff have over 30 years combined experience working within the industry. We print and embroider on 600+ products for all types of businesses.
We have a simple mission - to create the best products possible. We’ve done the hard work and sourced the best merch on the planet - so you don’t have to.
