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 ‘Gig Buddies’ with people who have a learning disability; ‘Gig Goers’ 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.
