- Over 250 Community Managers have been been provided free mental health training from Safe In Our World
- We’ve signed over 140 Level Up Partners since the programme started and have created an exclusive Level Up Member’s Area on our website
- We’ve co-created a Student Mental Health Toolkit with Grads In Games
- We’ve implemented bespoke training
- We launched a COVID-19 Hub and a Crisis Hub to supplement specific resources to those in need
- We created a community Discord Server with almost 900 members
Ambassadors: Class of 2023
We are launching our new Ambassador Programme, sponsored by TechRaptor. This is an annual programme, where we will be announcing a new class of Ambassadors at the end of each calendar year to represent us in the following year.
This Friday, we’re starting our Press Pause charity fundraiser, to celebrate our anniversary! We’re inviting you to join us and press pause on life by pressing play in-game.
It ties in nicely with our theme for October: Reflection and Self-Compassion.
Community Manager Mental Health Guide
We’ve been working really hard to support community managers in our industry through our Mental Health First Aid for Community Managers training with Mind Fitness – and now we’ve got a brand new resource!
We’re releasing a Community Managers Mental Health Introduction toolkit which provides 10 useful tips for self-care and mental wellbeing, and an overview of the full course. Any CMs who have completed the course will also receive a Community Managers Mental Health Companion toolkit to support them and their communities after completing the training.
The introduction toolkit is available to download for free here. If you’re a Community Manager, aspiring Community Manager, or just want some guidance on setting boundaries and practicing self-care, please take a look.

Check out our brand new video filmed at Develop Brighton this year, where we interview games industry folk and gamers alike on why games matter to them.
It wouldn’t be an anniversary without a teaser into what is coming soon, would it? Let’s just say, maybe we will have something irl for you to get your hands on in 2023.
