Young people from across our projects kindly volunteered at the Victorious Festival alongside Game Over which is Portsmouth’s first and only video games café. They set up their gaming tent in the kids’ arena at Victorious where our young people gave out leaflets and information about Game Over to the general public. It was incredible seeing the confidence and independence blossom as they were all so willing and engaged with the voluntary experience. All the young people were kindly rewarded with a weekend access pass to the popular music festival.

Enable Ability was one of several local and national charities that Victorious Festival supported over the Bank holiday weekend; sharing a local video about our charity and what we do. To see the video, please click here.

As well as this, the Portsmouth Teenage Project got to enjoy a snippet of the music festival on the Friday afternoon. Thank you to Victorious Festival for offering our young people in the Teenage Project free tickets for the Friday afternoon. All the young people enjoyed the experience (first music festival for many) within a supported environment.

Enable Ability and Game Over already have a strong relationship and have both worked with one another on many occasions in the past. Enable Ability are launching their new Inter Activ scheme very soon, where Game Over is working alongside the new initiative. For more information on our exciting programme, please click here.
