There's no one-size-fits-all way of doing this, so normally (ie pre-lockdown!) our team of occupational therapists will meet people face-to-face, either by visiting them or welcoming them to our games room in Oxfordshire. Our team will have talked to the person before the visit to build up a picture of their abilities and what they want to play, and during the visit they’ll work with the person to create a personalised gaming setup using carefully-selected technology from the huge selection in our loan library. The loan is then backed up with lifelong follow-up support as the person’s needs and abilities change, and as potentially suitable new technology evolves.
Although these face-to-face visits aren’t possible at the moment, our virtual doors are still open to those who need us. Our team is carrying on its life-transforming work through online assessments, remote support and equipment provision. We’re continuing to welcome new referrals as well as supporting people we’ve previously helped, so please do get in touch via email or through our website if you think we can help.
We’ve been providing lifelong support on an individual basis to hundreds of people across the UK since 2007, and we’re also answering thousands of enquiries from around the world and having an increasing global influence through our collaboration with hardware and software developers. Our own freely-available accessibility utilities like EyeMine are bringing the magic of gaming within reach of thousands more.
We don’t charge for anything we do. We simply aim to do whatever it takes to raise the quality of life of as many disabled gamers all over the world as possible.
We hope you enjoy the spotlight content and the fantastic giveaway, and massive thanks to Stevie for bringing us onboard!
