Story

We are looking for some support in our quest to support children and young adults who have been let down by our education system and are suffering. These youngsters often have social emotional or special educational needs and we engage them by firing up their creative side through the use of technology and imagination. For some info about one of of our programmes is at this link and is called Projects with Purpose.

We run an alternative education system (1 on 1) and are also are reaching out to develop a social scene and community to bring likeminded individuals together and have fun.

One of the key issues we see is social exclusion and anxiety which is widespread. so as a result we are working hard to develop the UK's first purpose built Fully Accessible Gaming and Streaming Studio.

We have 3D Printer, TV Studio, Radio Studio, a computer lab (teaching coding and games design), retro computer museum, engineering workshop and a gaming space.

We intend to run regular events here which will showcase a new concept to support parents who find the whole online world a bit of a maze. It is called Ready Parent One and will help to educate parents and kids about the benefits and issues which surround the online digital world.

On 8-10 August we are running an event to begin to develop our community which has attracted the attention of Microsoft Accessibility Team in the USA and we are in discussion about showcasing technology here. We also have strong ties to Mixer and the streaming community, one of the UK's top Mixer streamers Stream British is working with us to raise funds and awareness and is also reaching out to the pro gamer circuit across the world to get support.

There will be all sorts of Gaming activities available within one of three gaming zones.

Tabletop Gaming Zone will include Chess, Card Games, Exploding Kittens, Quirkle, Dungeons and Dragons and much much more

Retro Gaming Zone will include Sega Classics, Nintendo NES, Atari 2600 Games (many) Arcade Classics Space Invaders, Galaxians, Caterpillar, Pac Man, Plenty of other Systems such as Atari ST, Amiga, ZX Spectrum and BBC Model B

Modern Gaming Zone will include Minecraft, Roblox, Fortnite, Space Engineers, Forza, PUBG, Rocket League and loads more.

Our aim is to raise some funds to provide accessible gaming equipment to ensure that we can provide gaming for everyone.
