Searching for a Gig Buddy?

Heading out tonight? A bit of Saturday night fever? Clubbing? Heading to the Sydney Sixers? It’s just part of having a fun Saturday night. On the Weekend Breakfast Show, we spoke with an organisation that wants to ensure everyone has that opportunity to stay up late and have fun. Sydney’s Gig Buddies is an initiative by ACL Disability Services that pairs people with a learning disability with volunteers to go to events together. 

To find out more about Sydney’s Gig Buddies, Jess spoke with the CEO of ACL Disability Services & Gig Buddies Sydney Carol Smail.


Sydney’s Gig Buddies have made a call out for buddies in the Inner West of Sydney, with plenty of volunteers on the waiting list. To get involved visit their website
