Keeping the fun flowing for Tiernan

This is lovely! One of the ways our dedicated team are carrying on our life-transforming work through the coming months is via equipment loans, and it was wonderful to receive this photo and message this week from Tiernan’s father James during a routine email exchange.

As many of our supporters already know, we provide a lifelong assessment and support service to keep pace with the ever-changing needs and abilities of everyone we help, whether it be overcoming the challenges of accessing the brand new games they’d like to play or making the most of the very latest technology.

“Tiernan has such a fantastic time playing on his Xbox thanks to your help in getting a good setup. It's wonderful to see him on a level playing field, playing with friends and family just like any other kid of his age. The benefits extend beyond the time spent on the console because he loves to chat to people about FIFA, football and Xbox. We can't thank you all at SpecialEffect enough, you do wonderful work, keep it up!”

We’ve got your back, Tiernan!
