The Kids are Rockin across England

The Rockin R charity provide mobile gaming units to children & young adults who are immobile, have limited access to activities, or are in hospital for lengthy periods of time.

They offer equipment to healthcare professionals with the means to make activities & technology accessible to these young people. These units offer a great source of support to children during their healing process and as they undergo treatments and procedures. Undergoing medical treatment can often be a scary and isolating experience and there is a special need for age-appropriate coping tools in hospitals.

The mobile gaming units consist of an Xbox One S, or PlayStation 4 gaming console, 2 wireless controllers, 24" gaming monitors and a fully health and safety approved mobile gaming cart. Every unit is complete with the latest pre-loaded age-appropriate video games. They personally deliver every unit to the hospitals or hospices. Play specialists and staff receive initial training to ensure the unit gets used to its full potential. These really do make a difference to children spending time on hospital wards.
