The SpecialEffect Difference

The SpecialEffect Difference

Vicon are proud to support SpecialEffect a charity very close to our hearts and based where we began in Oxford.

10 years on and doing fantastic work. Nobody likes being left out. That’s why UK-based charity SpecialEffect are using technology to level the video gaming playing field for people with physical disabilities. They’re providing the specialist technology, advice and support for everyone to benefit from the fun, friendship and inclusion of video games. They know there’s no one-size-fits-all way of doing this, so they visit people personally to find out exactly what they want to play, and what they need to play it. They then match, modify or create gaming control setups to lend to them, and give support so they can get the best out of their games.

Founded in 2007, the charity are 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. They don’t charge for anything they do. They simply aim to do whatever it takes to raise the quality of life for everyone they work with. SpecialEffect are simply changing a small part of the world to make it a more fair and fun place, for everyone.
