Therapeutic Gaming for Young People

One of the charities 3 main efforts in 2024 was to set up and support new projects for children and young people living with chronic disease. We will be doing this in partnership with Roald Dahl Foundation and the first group will be for Young People diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. 

For more details drop us an email, mentioning the project in the subject header. 

Online Project- Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

We are currently developing an online, weekly Dungeons & Dragons type games hub for young people (aged 12+, in age-streamed games) living with Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy.

Each group will be for 4-6 (age appropriate) players supervised by a Therapeutic Gaming trained Games Master. 
The Dungeons & Dragons game will be co-created between psycholgists, educationalists and clients. The aim is to reduce social isolation, increase social engagement, social skills, language skills, numeracy, and creative thinking. 


Our Volunteers 

All our volunteers will be given training, peer-montorship and clinical supervision. They all have a current DBS and are insured under the charity. 

Our partners

In addition to local schools these projects are also delivered through partnership with:
