Accessibility in gaming

Gaming has many benefits, like:

  • helping with relaxation
  • managing stress, and
  • socialising

But two thirds of disabled gamers told us they face barriers. These barriers stop disabled people from enjoying the benefits of gaming.

Accessibility in gaming: learn more

By taking part in Power Up and Play, you are not only supporting disabled people and their families. You are also shining a light on the importance of accessibility and power of inclusion. We want to see gaming made truly accessible.

It's game over for disability inequality!
