Gig Buddies Radio Show

Gig Buddies is a project that matches people with a learning disability with a volunteer who has similar interests to go to nightlife activities together.

The aim of the project is to support people with a learning disability to make new friends and help them go out and do the things they enjoy.

Mencap currently delivers Gig Buddies in Bradford, Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire, and the Gig Buddies Radio Show is broadcast once every four weeks here on BCB Radio.
