Beating disability to play video games

It's the best reason to game ever!

The UK's largest charity gaming weekend is back this weekend!

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.

Our Work

Video Game Access

Our work is transformational and unique. Our team of therapists and technologists are determined that everyone, whatever their physical disability, should be able to share the fun, laughter and inclusion that video games can bring.

From controller modifications to voice controls and switch interfaces, all our customised gaming setups are designed to suit the very specific individual needs of each person we help.



The impact of what we do extends beyond video games. Our StarGaze project brings the loan and support of eye control technology to people who suffer a sudden injury or illness that leaves them completely paralysed except for their eyes.

It’s technology that can initially provide emergency communication, but can also lead to independence in education, work and leisure.
