GamesAid is the UK’s video games industry based charity. They distribute funds to a number of children’s and young people’s charities each year as a means of giving something back on behalf of the industry. They raise funds through:

Industry sponsored social and sporting events (e.g. golf day, runs, games nights)

Individual and corporate donations

Sale of charity branded game packs / titles

Resale of unwanted merchandise on their ebay shop

 

The funds raised throughout the year are then shared between a number of charities supporting disabled and disadvantaged children and young people

 

We are really excited to have been selected as a GamesAid charity again this year. Their hugely generous donation of £95,400 is going to change lives immeasurably.

 

"For 9 years in a row, Action For Kids has been a GamesAid charity. Considering the warmth of all the staff, fuelled by the passion they have to help disabled young people gain independence, it's no surprise that our members have voted for them to be one of our supported charities year in, year out."
