THE CHARITY

 

Game Therapy UK is a new and innovative charity set up to promote Game Therapy in the UK for the public benefit.

Game Therapy UK's vision is to ensure an access to all those who would benefit from Game Therapy. 

Our core values are inclusivity, accessibility and compassion

Game Therapy UK's activities include supporting the provision of high quality, evidence-based Game Therapy projects to the UK population across the areas of physical health, mental health and social disadvantage.

 

We will also promote research into, and education of, all aspects of Game Therapy.

Game Therapy UK is a newly formed charity and is currently structured as an unincorporated charitable association. The constitution documents, policy documents and financial summary are available on request. 

THE NEED

 

There is a considerable body of evidence, going as far back as the 1950's, supporting the benefit of high quality Game Therapy as an adjunct to psychological therapy, occupational therapy, education and recovery work. This work has mainly been done in the USA. However there is almost no provision of formal Game Therapy in the UK.  After a conversation between clinicians, educators, recovery workers and role playing game professionals a new charity was set up to address this need in the UK for the public benefit.

Game Therapy UK work closely with experts across various fields (for example, psychologists, occupational therapists, educationalist, drug and alcohol recovery workers), to reach a wide range of clients.
