Scheme in Sussex for music lovers with learning disabilities makes it on to Nesta’s 2014 New Radicals list

Stay Up Late, a charity committed to promoting the rights of people with learning disabilities, has been listed on the 2014 New Radicals list compiled by Nesta. The founder, Paul Richards, is also Think Local Act Personal (TLAP)’s new Co-production Lead, helping to make sure all projects are co-produced with people who use services and carers. Gig Buddies matches a person with a learning disability with a volunteer who shares the same taste in music so together they can stay up late attending gigs.
