SpecialEffect is a charity based in Oxfordshire that provides video game access to individuals with physical disabilities through means of specialised equipment, including controllers, joysticks and switches.

Each setup is completely tailored to the individual based on their functional movements and the games they would like to play, so every setup is unique.
