Inclusion Melbourne’s Leisure Buddies service links a volunteer with an adult with intellectual disability. The participant needs to have appropriate NDIS funding (more information available on request). Buddies can share interests, goals and activities and develop a real friendship. Leisure buddies are matched according to several factors such as where they both live and their shared interests and goals. Buddies meet regularly. This may be weekly or fortnightly, on weekdays or weekends, depending on their goals and what suits both buddies.
