Our Advisory Groups
We have three advisory groups, one for Brighton called Storm & Thunder, one for East Sussex called Wise Owls and one for West Sussex called Stormzy’s Crew. We are participants of the Gig Buddies project that have a learning disability. There are around six of us in each group. We meet up every couple of months or so to advise, guide and inform Stay Up late and the Gig Buddies project.
It is really important for Stay Up Late to make sure that adults with learning disabilities are involved in every part of the charity. This is why the advisory groups were created when the Gig Buddies project started and why they remain a vital part of the project.
We believe that there should be “Nothing about us, without us!” and so does Stay Up Late.
This means we do lots of things. For example, protests and awareness raising, writing easier to read safety guides, advising the team on policies, socials and parties!
We are always looking for people with new ideas. If you think you would like to join one of the advisory groups then please ring the office on 01273 418 102.
