I’ve been a supporter of SpecialEffect since meeting their team in 2013. This amazing UK-based charity helps put fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping them to play video games.
They’re finding a way for everyone to play to the best of their abilities using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control software. This isn’t just for entertainment: by levelling the playing field, they’re bringing families and friends together and having a profoundly positive impact on therapy, confidence and rehabilitation.
Every February I take part in an annual gaming marathon called GameBlast to raise funds and awareness for SpecialEffect. And throughout the year I participate in all kinds of other activities including volunteering on their stand at conventions and speaking about their awesome work to various groups.
You can find out how we’re showing our support here at Later Levels by taking a look at our posts about the charity. Further information can also be found on their website, and you can stay up-to-date on their progress by giving them a follow on social media.
