It's time to game! 

Power Up and Play is Scope’s new fundraising event, built for streamers and gamers alike. 

Designed in collaboration with disabled gamers, Power Up and Play shines a light on the importance of accessibility and the power of inclusion.

Whether you play to beat your best score, to relax or to share your unique experience of gaming, there’s an activity or challenge for you.

Watch the trailer for Power Up and Play below, and visit this page for further information and details of how you can get involved.

    How awesome is that!! I will have a look.   My son actually leant me his Oculus Quest VR when i was having a bad anxiety day, bearing in mind, i am 49, the last game console i ever touched was the PS1.  Havent played for years.  So he set it up, and said mum go and play the drums.  Beat Saber music where you have square blocks which are two colours the controllers are your drum sticks, you have to hit the right colour in the direction of the arrow in the box.  6 months ago he said have a go... not sure he meant keep it lol
