We’re very excited to share that last week Lifelites appeared in a BBC Radio one series about video gaming, in a special episode about accessibility.
The show, presented by Julia Hardy, looked at how different individuals and organisations are working hard to make gaming accessible for people with disabilities.
Accessibility and gaming is at the heart of what Lifelites does, so this was a fantastic project to be a part of. The episode features a number of children and young people using Lifelites technology at Naomi House & Jacksplace hospices for children and young adults, and also looked at our Enable Gaming project with London South Bank University, which encourages students to design games with accessibility in mind.
Giving children and young people with the disabilities the ability to game can be simply life changing. In a world where they are unable to control anything for themselves due to their disability, the technology we provide can help relieve isolation, develop social skills, and most importantly, play games and have fun.
If you would like to know more about what we do, or would be interested in working with Lifelites to help us continue to give children in hospices these opportunities, please get in touch.
