Mad for Mario? Fanatical about Fifa? This could be the role for you!
Befriending / Visiting volunteers needed for Dimensions
Video gamers wanted!
Are you a gaming fanatic? Do you enjoy playing with others?
A number of people we support absolutely love gaming and technology and so we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to be their gaming buddies!
As a volunteer buddy, you would be matched up with a person we support to play different games with and talk all things tech!
Whether you have an Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo Switch or other exciting consoles to play a range of games on, we would love for you to get in touch.
This is a virtual role, so your location can be flexible.
Activities will include:
- Getting to know the person you’ll be supporting and the types of games they enjoy
- Showing the person we support how to play different games
- Playing games together online on a regular basis (eg once a week would be ideal)
- Chatting about programming/gaming/technology
How Dimensions is managing Covid-19:
We confirm we have complied with the government guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19. We would like to assure applicants and new starters that Dimensions is taking all possible steps to minimise risks to volunteers and colleagues during the coronavirus pandemic.
