5 Steps to being a Gig Buddy
If you are signed up as a participant or volunteer you can come to our group events
(even if you don’t have a gig buddy)
*Matching you with a buddy can take some time. The Gig Buddies project cannot guarantee participants will be matched with a volunteer
** A signed Service Agreement must be returned to ACL Disability Services before a pairing can be made.
Gig Buddies and the NDIS
The Gig Buddies project charges 3 hours per month** administration charge.
This comes from your NDIS package (Core Support or Capacity Building).

What does NDIS funding go towards?
** the 3 hours per month administration charge is not directly related to the number of hours participants spend with their volunteer buddy
