The GameBlast difference

Just over a year ago your amazing GameBlast20 support kicked into practical action and started to make a real difference to the lives of many gamers.

Here are just a few of the breakthrough stories from the first three months of 2020 alone, telling how (clockwise, from top left) Sasha, Tye, Bella, Ethan, Pete, Eleanor, Paul and David were able to play to the best of their abilities thanks to game-changing interventions from our specialist assessment team.

It’s YOUR GameBlasting that’s helped to make these stories possible. You helped us to successfully continue our lifelong assessment service as it transitioned to remote support during the coronavirus restrictions and bring so much gaming magic to hundreds of people. A huge, heartfelt thank you from everyone here, and we can’t wait to join you next weekend for GameBlast21. Bring it on!

UPDATE: Don’t miss hearing Paul talking about his gaming journey during the GameBlast weekend! He’s being interviewed along with our Founder and CEO Dr Mick Donegan on the EA DICE GameBlast Stream on Friday 26 February.
