Nobody likes being left out. That’s why SpecialEffect put fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping them to play video games. By using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control, they’re finding a way for people to play to the very best of their abilities.

We know there's no one-size-fits-all way of doing this, so we visit people personally to find out exactly what they want to play and what they need to play. We then match or modify technology to create truly personalised gaming control setups, and back this up with lifelong follow-up support.

Founded in 2007, the charity is helping hundreds of people on an individual basis across the UK every year. They also answer thousands of enquiries from around the world and have an increasing global influence through collaboration with hardware and software developers.

We don’t charge for anything we do. Our aim is to do whatever it takes to raise the quality of life for everyone they work with. SpecialEffect are changing a small part of the world to make it a more fair and fun place, for everyone.
