How To Help

Thank you for your interest in The Playstation.

There are lots of ways that you can get involved, though we also appreciate new ideas and suggestions.

If you have any questions, or thoughts, please do

Contact Us.


The volunteers are the heart of The Playstation. They not only make the visit experience a welcoming and enriching one for the children but they create a happy and colourful atmosphere which spreads across the room.  Without their dedication and commitment there would be no play provision within the visits room.


We are always on the look out for play volunteers to join the crew at The Playstation - and help make this stop along the children's journey a very happy one.  Click here to find out more about this role.



We welcome help sharing news about our work, and raising awareness of the challenges faced by young people who are affected by imprisonment.


We rely on donations and support from individuals and grant-giving bodies, and are very grateful for any contribution, no matter how small. Though the Playstation is crewed by volunteers it has three paid members of staff and, as we no longer receive government funding, we appreciate even more than ever your support. All gifts and fundraising enable us to continue providing an important service for some of Scotland’s most vulnerable children.

You can help us by making a donation, organising or supporting a

fundraising event (e.g. a coffee morning or sponsored walk) or

just by your continued interest and spreading the word about

what we do.

We are very grateful for any donations and if you feel you would
