Special Effect - The Gamers' Charity
We put fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping them to play video games.
By using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control, we're finding a way for people to play to the very best of their abilities. But we're not just doing it for fun. By levelling the playing field, we're bringing families and friends together and having a profoundly positive impact on therapy, confidence and rehabilitation.
How we can help
If you have a physical disability that limits or stops you from playing video games, get in touch. We have a range of accessible gaming equipment to try out in our Games Room in Oxfordshire, and there’s also the option of a home visit if your disability limits your ability to travel. We may also be able to loan you equipment following an assessment, so you can try before you buy.
We’ll do our best to help you play the games you want to play, and if your needs change, we’ll come back to look at alternative solutions that will keep you going to the best of your abilities.
There’s no charge for any of our help, so if you think we might be able to assist, get in touch.
