Games Aid is the games industry charity raising money for other UK charities working with children and young people.
Games Aid acts as a collective for charitable activity on behalf of the industry, taking advice from all sectors. It is a non-trading body. The charity is administered by Trustees, who operate on a fixed-term basis. It is formally run by a Chair, who is also on a fixed term.
Games Aid is an umbrella charity raising money for a number of charities that support children and young people. Each year our members will nominate charities that they wish us to support and then the membership will vote on who should receive the funds that we raise.
Games Aid's mission is to use the skills and passion of the gaming industry to raise funds for these causes.
