Gig Buddies Cardiff
Festival of Voice has partnered with Learning Disability Wales and First Choice Housing Association to launch Gig Buddies in Wales.
Gig Buddies Cardiff is a befriending scheme that matches people with a learning disability with volunteers who share the same interests so they can go to gigs together.
Many people with a learning disability find it extremely difficult to attend events that take place at night. Lack of support, or inflexible support that forces them to leave events early, is a major barrier. Other obstacles include, transport, confidence, safety, and accessibility of venues.
Gig Buddies Cardiff is a new project that will make it possible for people with a learning disability to stay up late and attend the live music and arts by night.
