Gaming Together is an inclusive gaming session for neurodivergent young people aged 8-18yrs and their friends. Run by volunteers in partnership with Gloucestershire Parent Carer Forum.
Join us this Sunday for a relaxed, neurodivergent friendly gaming session at Solace Gym in Leckhampton from 2-4pm. We have lots of great board games and some (retro) gaming consoles to enjoy including PS3, PS4, Xbox360 and Wii. Plus you can bring your own tablet, handheld console or laptop to engage in ‘local play’ for games like Minecraft, Among Us etc.
BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL – SPACES ARE LIMITED TO AVOID OVERWHELMING YOUNG PEOPLE.
Parents must stay and supervise their children. Our volunteers will help with setting up games but are not responsible for supervising children.
Downstairs we have a cafe area with board games and space to play on your own consoles and a quiet space for sensory time/chilling out. There’s a tuckshop available and everyone with a gamer ticket gets tokens to spend at the tuck shop.
Upstairs we have an all age, all volume space plus separate quiet gaming spaces for under 11s and over 11s. These can be used for playing on your own handheld consoles/tablets etc or trying out some of the retro gaming consoles.
Please book a £5 ticket for every gamer you are bringing aged 8-18 (if you have younger children please let us know so we can ensure we make space for them whilst giving the older children their peer group time). Parent Carers are free and we have tea, coffee and biscuits for you all! Payment on the day by cash or paypal.
The group is open to neurodivergent young people and their friends, we have created different spaces to accommodate different sensory and interactive requirements but we need everyone to support one another and aim to keep the space autism friendly and calm. We do not have access to the gym and have been asked not to let young people run around/hide so please consider this when deciding if this session is right for your young person.
