UK charity uses video games to help children reconnect with their estranged parents
While the gaming industry is under more external scrutiny than ever as it deals with complaints about loot boxes and addiction courtesy of tabloid hysteria, a UK charity is using video games to help children reconnect with their estranged parents.
As reported in the Slough Express, the Louis Baylis Trust has awarded Church Street Child Contact Centre a modest grant of just under £700 to purchase consoles and video games to give children a safe, relaxing space and enable them to play with their family members by way of “an effective icebreaker”.
While most of its funding is ring-fenced for core running costs, this additional award permits the charity to buy the games and equipment it says it needs to help families learn to communicate and work together.
