Meet new people! Try new things!

Updated: Oct 24, 2021

We need new recruits. Specifically, we’re looking for Gig Buddies - adults (18+) with mild to moderate learning disabilities and / or autism who live on the Central Coast.

Gig Buddies tackles social isolation, and we have volunteers based throughout the region who are waiting and ready to go! The benefits of joining our growing community include:

Meet new people! Try new things! Expand your circle of friends! Go out with someone who’s not a family member or support worker!

We match adults with disabilities with volunteers, both of whom share a mutual passion(s). Age, gender and location preferences are also taken into consideration - and once paired up, ‘matched buddies’ attend gigs and events of their choosing. These can range from music concerts, sporting matches, bushwalking or catching up for a coffee – the possibilities are endless, and are all determined on someone’s personal interests.

We’re due to commence work on the project’s fifth pairing. With lockdown restrictions beginning to ease, now is the perfect time to join the fun.

If you (or someone you know) would benefit from joining us at Gig Buddies Central Coast, feel free to send a text or call us on 0402 708 814. Alternatively, head to our website, or get in touch via Facebook Messenger.


Land ahoy!
