Gaming for Good

18th April 2021

We recently partnered with End Youth Homelessness to launch the first-ever national gaming festival, Gaming for Good. Between the 2nd to 17th April gamers up and down the country got online and raised an astounding £27,500 to support our mission.

The amount of money raised meant we were able to provide 227 ‘move on’ packs to young people facing homelessness to support them to get set up in their new home or the equivalent of more than 1,195 hours of dedicated support from a Job Coach to help them into employment, education or training. A huge thank you to everyone who got involved!
