Our charity partners


We are delighted and honoured to support this incredible charity, which has a mission to enable anyone, whatever their physical disability, to enjoy games.

By using technology ranging from modified joypads to eye-control, SpecialEffect is finding a way for people to play to the very best of their abilities. But we're not just doing it for fun. By levelling the playing field, they're bringing families and friends together and having a profoundly positive impact on confidence and rehabilitation.

The amazing people at SpecialEffect visit people to find out what they want to play, and exactly what they need to play it. The team will then match, modify or create equipment to lend to them, and give support so they can get the best out of it. From modified gaming controllers to eye-control systems, every system recommended or loaned is personalised. Sometimes that might mean adding voice control or a chin joystick, or the button positions on a controller may be adapted.

The work that SpecialEffect has a huge – and very real – impact on the lives of children or young people who have limited physical abilities. And the team at Amiqus is very happy to lend our support through fund-raising initiatives and more.
