We started our gaming service Everyone Can Game in 2014. However, we’ve been helping disabled people game long before then.

My name is Alex, and I am a blind student volunteering with the Aidis Trust today as part of my work experience provided by my school. Aidis have asked me to review a game called “A Blind Legend”.
It’s always good to get a fresh perspective on life. This week we have enjoyed having two young people on work experience, one chap who is blind in London and one chap in Stockport who has no disability. We thought it interesting to get feedback from both as one young man would trial a game designed to be played by someone with his disability, whilst we would help the other young man to understand what to look for in a game to make it either accessible out of the box, or how it can be adapted to become accessible.
I’ve been volunteering for The Aidis Trust since early June 2016, with my first blog post having been published on 28 June 2016 , a year ago. So now, seeing as it’s been just over a year since my first post was published, I thought I’d write a blog about how I’ve found the experience of volunteering for The Aidis Trust so far, what I do for the blog and a bit about how my creative process works.
As you may know, the Aidis Trust has been running a project called Everyone Can Game, which aims to help disabled people to become involved in gaming. As a part of which, there have been gaming days to get disabled children playing games in an accessible way. Well, I thought it might be a good opportunity to catch up on how things are going as well as talk all things gaming with one of the project’s volunteers.
