Become a Gig Buddy Volunteer
Organisation: GigBuddies for Good Mental Health - Synergy Creative Community CIC
Opportunity: Become a Gig Buddy Volunteer
Do you live in Sussex? Do you like going out? Do you want to help someone with poor mental health to enjoy doing the things they love? If so, this role could be for you. Gig Buddies for Good Mental Health is a befriending service that matches volunteers with someone experiencing low to moderate mental health issues to help them feel less isolated and give them the chance to enjoy the things they love doing. With the COVID-19 lockdown, this service is more important than ever. They take a lot of care to match you with someone who has a common interest. Once matched, the two of you meet up once or twice a month and enjoy something you are both interested in. This could involve music, comedy, theatre, art, walking, cycling, food, sport, chess or anything else. You may need to help your buddy with transport. This is a fun way to volunteer which doesn't involve a lot of time and you get to do things you might be doing anyway!
