Gig Buddies Scheme ‚Äď An exciting New Project with Square Chapel

Gig Buddies is a new initiative within Calderdale which aims to promote social inclusion among people who have a learning disability.

The scheme aims to reduce the barriers faced by people with a learning disability in relation to accessing social activities. These have been identified as attending the theatre, cinema, live music and anything else that a person may wish to engage with in their leisure time.

The¬†scheme aims to match volunteers who will be referred to as ‚ÄėGig Buddies‚Äô with people who have a learning disability; ‚ÄėGig Goers‚Äô based upon shared interests. The idea is that we will match buddies with people and arrange introductions before supporting you to your first gig; whatever this may be.
