    GIG BUDDIES -LEARNING DISABILITY WALES

    Buddies is a befriending scheme that matches a person with a learning disability and/or autism with someone without a learning disability and/or autism based on similar interests to gigs and events together. Gig Buddies Wales also runs a regular social exclusively for members of the project. This enables wider friendships to develop and opportunities to develop skills such as hosting a social, creating the agenda for future socials and communication skills overall. Gig Buddies contributes to tackling social isolation and loneliness in communities which is felt considerably by people with a learning disability/and or autism. We are offering free entry to all people running for Gig Buddies.  We will provide a free t-shirt to all runners. We ask that each runner raises £250 to support the project in Wales.

    Gig Buddies is a project run by Learning Disability Wales. Other organisations run Gig Buddies projects in England, Scotland and Australia.
