Donate Video Games to a Good Cause!

Welcome to the official UK homepage of Get-Well Gamers!

Get-Well Gamers aims to bring electronic entertainment to hospitals in the form of video games and video game consoles. Video games are an effective and proven pain management tool and provide needed entertainment for young people during long hospital stays. We are currently linked up with over 20 hospitals across the UK.

We rely on the support of generous gamers across the UK who kindly send us their unused games and consoles. If you have items that you want to donate, please consider doing so today! We also encourage companies to hold office drives to gather items - you can see the list of companies who have supported us on our thanks page!

The Get-Well Gamers Foundation (GWGF), our sister organisation, was founded in 2001 and provides for hospitals in the United States and Canada. They currently serve hundreds of children's hospitals across the U.S. in an ever-expanding donation network that has already brought much-needed entertainment to hundreds of thousands of children each year. If you are based in North America, please consider donating to GWGF
