Board Games Expert
Hosted by: Our Place (Barnsley)

Our Place (Barnsley) provides support to adults with learning disabilities.
We operate drop in sessions three days per week, including Saturday’s, where people can come and meet their friends.
We have various activities available such as arts and crafts, quizzes, bingo, karaoke and much more!

Do you enjoy playing board games? Would you like to make a difference AND get to play games while you are doing it? Then this role could be for you.

Our Place are currently looking for people who have an interest in board games that can help to run games activities with clients at our weekly sessions. They sessions run at different times, and we understand if you can only commit to an hour a week within that session. You can do more hours if you would like, but just an hour would make a huge difference to our clients.

How many volunteers are needed:

up to 5

Recruitment process:

If anyone is interested in becoming our board games expert, then please register your interest below or email Ourplace_barnsley@gmx.com and we will be in touch to have an informal chat.

Skills and quaifications:

What’s important is that our clients have a great time while they are with us, as should you. There are several clients that like playing board games, but find they have no one to play with.

We need your board game experience, and hope you have a great time while you are doing something you enjoy, which in return will ensure our clients have a great few hours too.

No formal qualifications are required, just a passion to play games, be friendly and approachable and the willingness to help make someone’s day.

You don’t need to provide your own games, as we have some already, but would welcome any new ones you would like to introduce to the group.
