New interactive play system for youth club
TAG Youth Club in Richmond provides a safe, stimulating and engaging environment where young people with disabilities, between 8 and 25 years of age, can meet up with friends and enjoy activities including arts, drama, music and sport.
TAG’s Youth workers help the young people with disabilities here develop their self awareness and self esteem as and learn social and life skills too. This vital work takes place in the well-equipped, safe centre in Richmond and also in the wider community locally.
Our donation of £5,000 helped purchase a Magic Mirror sensory system for TAG. The Magic Mirror is the only interactive projection system that allows users of different ages and abilities to play and learn together. It supports national curriculum SEN learning responding to the slightest movement, supporting multiple access methods such as gesture, eye gaze, mouse and touch, and projects a variable image catering for wheelchair accessibility.
“A massive thank you to the Axis Foundation. This grant is enabling us to purchase a 3D motion censored sensory system which allows young people with disabilities to play interactive games”
