Maldon and District CVS is looking for volunteers to help run a scheme aimed at bringing young people together through their shared love of gaming.

By connecting through a shared interest, organisers say the 'Power of Gaming' project can have a positive impact on participants' mental and physical wellbeing.

Power of Gaming hosts fortnightly sessions, along with holiday club sessions. For them to run smoothly, the charity needs several volunteers to fill various roles:

Holiday Club Helper

  • Volunteers are needed to help at holiday clubs for children aged 10 years and over, as part of the Essex ActivAte programme.
  • They will interact with the young people, including helping to set up sessions and making them feel welcome.
  • Visit the Maldon CVS website for more details.

Gaming Guru

  • For anyone with a passion for gaming and a knowledge of different consoles, this could prove to be the perfect role.
  • Volunteers will help to set up sessions and support participants, often young people, to choose games, play together and gain confidence.
  • Visit the Maldon CVS website for more details.

Kitchen and Catering Support

  • Volunteers are needed to help prepare, serve, and clear away meals and refreshments at sessions, along with interacting with the young people.
  • Visit the Maldon CVS website for more details.

Maldon & District CVS, a charity based at the Maldon District Council offices, offers support to over 200 voluntary and community groups throughout the Maldon District.

Those wishing to get involved with the community-spirited project should get in touch with The Power of Gaming via email.
