SpecialEffect and COVID

All of us are facing significant challenges as a result of the pandemic, not least the severely physically disabled and vulnerable people that we exist to support. Our thoughts are with all of those who are affected at this difficult time.

We’d like to assure the community we serve that we remain committed to fulfilling our core mission and will be continuing to do all we can to help them with their gaming and technology access needs. Although face-to-face visits are not possible at the moment, our dedicated team is carrying on its life-transforming work through online assessments, remote support and equipment provision. We continue to welcome new referrals as well as supporting our existing service users, so please do get in touch via email or through the contact form if you think we can help.

The current situation has also resulted in several major events that were due to take place being cancelled or postponed, meaning we won’t have the opportunity to meet and thank you face-to-face. As we won’t be seeing you for a while, please do stay in touch with all our latest news via our social media channels, newsletter and website.

We’d like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for all the kind words of support we’ve received so far and your continued generosity. Please look after yourselves and we hope it won’t be too long before we see you again and can say thank you in person.
