Thousands of people want to share your passion for video games, but their disabilities stop them playing any of the titles you’re fanatical about.

But you can change lives during the GameBlast17 weekend of 24-26 February by organising your own sponsored gaming marathon or challenge event.

All the money you raise will help us find ways for people with disabilities to play again. You'll be funding the expertise, equipment loans and lifelong support that will bring fun, inclusion and joy into the lives of hundreds of people. 

If you’re passionate about games, Join us for GameBlast17 and help us level the gaming playing field for everyone!
