A LIFE-CHANGING DIFFERENCE

Thousands of aspiring gamers with disabilities
will realise their dreams because of your
support. You’ll truly be transforming lives.

Here at SpecialEffect we don’t charge for any of our help, so your support will make a massive impact.

You’ll be enabling our therapists to help gamers with disabilities find out what they want to play and exactly what they need to play it. You’ll be funding the personalised controller setups that we create and lend, and you’ll be enabling us to pass on what we learn to the games industry all over the world, making their products easier to use for as many people as possible.

The SpecialEffect difference goes beyond simply having fun. It means the gift of inclusion and a huge leap in quality of life to thousands of people of all ages. And we couldn’t do it without your help.

So to all the wonderful games industry partners who are generously donating games sales and resources, and to you for buying games and donating…

Thank you so much!


“I thought my gaming days were over.”

Chad had resigned himself to never playing again after muscular dystrophy robbed him of his passion, but now he’s levelling the playing field with a custom arrangement of a chin joystick and miniature finger switches. He won his first FIFA game 4-0 with the amazing control setup we created for him!

“SpecialEffect is more than just a charity which helps people play video games. They change lives. Through their knowledge and expertise, people like myself can now join in the fun and play with friends on an even playing field, experiencing all the benefits of social interaction. It may be hard for some to imagine, but being included in such activities makes a huge and positive difference in our lives.”

Alex lost the ability to use his hands at 16 because of spinal muscular atrophy. Thanks to our incredible combination of technology that harnesses his head, eye and body movement, he’s able to play a huge range of games with his friends and family.
