Logo of writing saying Stay Up Late

'Stay Up Late' is a registered charity committed to promoting the rights of people with learning disabilities to live the lifestyle of their choosing.

We began as a campaign started by the punk band Heavy Load based around enabling adults with learning disabilities to stay to the end of gigs and concerts. We now run a connection project called Gig Buddies, a Quality Checkers team, which inspects and reports on supported living settings, and other support and advisory groups on issues affecting adults with learning disabilities.

We've helped charities set up Gig Buddies projects around the world and since COVID-19 hit, we've been reimagining what a "gig' means, finding new ways to connect with our community online, and expand our reach to embrace more than live music.
