Who are Fair Gamers?
Fair Gamers are trained volunteers who make a big difference to local under-serviced Australian communities by running unique Sports, Fitness and Health programs.

- Respectful: Welcoming of the beautiful diversity in life without discrimination
- Fun: Bringing patience and a sense of humour along for the ride!
What’s in it for me?
- Joining a network of professionals within an innovative, exciting and highly acclaimed organisation
- Chance to help make a positive impact on the lives of under serviced community members
- Opportunities to volunteer in Perth regional activities and remote community road trips
- Fun social and travel opportunities
