Become a Gig Buddy

Applications for a 1:1 volunteer buddy – currently closed (January 2019)

Please note – this doesn’t mean applications to volunteer are closed. We are always looking for more volunteers. If you would like to support someone with a learning disability to enjoy social events Apply here.

Unfortunately applications for participants are currently closed as we are working hard to match the 200 people who are currently on our waiting list.

We are working hard to get people matched up so we can re-open the application process as soon as possible, but this is unlikely to be until next year, 2020.

We are committed to getting as many people involved as possible but as a small charity we have to be realistic about what we can manage to make sure the project is of a high quality for everyone involved.

People are welcome to join us at our monthly socials and events across Sussex independently or with their support – please call the office if you would like to register to attend any events. 01273 600438

If you would like to be kept informed of when the waiting list for a 1:1 buddy re-opens please drop us an email at info@stayuplate.org
