Join our exciting campaign and get gaming for a good cause

Videogames are played by hundreds of millions across the world, from the gamers who’ll dedicate hours at a time to their hobby, to people who might just play on their phone every once in a while. Videogames are big business and have the potential to offer a lot of support to good causes.

Charity gaming events are a great way for people to have fun and raise some money for a good cause at the same time. With over £75 million raised on livestreaming platform Twitch since 2012, millions are already gaming to make a difference - and you can make a difference to Tourettes Action by joining our exciting campaign!
