We are looking for volunteers aged 18 or over, who have an open mind and some experience working with children. If you are interested and would like to know more, please contact us or email our play coordinator, Ann: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We provide training in child protection procedures and other aspects of the role, and volunteers will be asked to give references and complete a criminal record check via Disclosure Scotland.
Volunteers’ main work takes place in the visiting room at Barlinnie Prison, during times where visiting families and convicted or remand prisoners are present. There are opportunities during the daytime and evenings, on weekdays and at weekends.
The Playstation relies on the contribution of volunteers, and we are always on the look out for more people to join our team.

If you enjoy working with children and can make a regular commitment (at the most, a three to four hour session once a week) over at least six months, we would love to hear from you.
