“SpecialEffect is delighted to once again be invited to join the Best Places to Work Awards as charity partner," said SpecialEffect's Tom Donegan.

"Having experienced first-hand the transformational impact of games industry support and collaboration in our own work, it is an honour to be able to celebrate the success of the growing number of brilliant CSR projects across the sector. The chance to extend the partnership this year as Best Places To Work goes international provides a great opportunity for us to raise awareness of the increasingly global influence of SpecialEffect projects like Eye Gaze Games and EyeMine, which are helping more disabled people across the world to enjoy all the fun and inclusion video games have to offer.”
