Stay Up Late
Stay Up Late
We support adults with learning disabilities to lead full and active social lives and the lifestyle of their choosing. We do this in two main ways:
1) Campaigning to change inflexible support systems that mean that adults with learning disabilities aren't able to be active in their communities in the evenings
2) Through our Gig Buddies volunteering project which matches socially isolated people with a volunteer who loves the same music, and they go to mainstream gigs together as friends.
We believe that all people with learning disabilities and/or autism should be able to choose how they live their lives.
Our mission is to support people to do this through our volunteering project and also through challenging inflexible support systems.
Perhaps our mission is best summed up by The Beastie Boys:
Stay Up Late aims to:
- To enable people with learning disabilities and/or autism to lead full and active social lives and the lifestyle of their choosing.
