Government policy can have a big impact on the games industry. Ukie is here to make sure that that our members' voices make a difference and that their opinions are heard by politicians and policy makers.

We are the go-to body for MPs, their aides, other creative industries, and government officials. We speak to government to make sure that the games industry’s voice is heard clearly on issues like tax breaks, consumer protection, child safety, age ratings, industry classification/measurement, computer science and skills, match funding for careers development and we sit on many different groups and boards to represent all the industry.

In May we launched our Powering Up Manifesto for the Next Parliament, outlining 10 key recommendations to Government for unlocking  growth in the UK games industry.

Thanks to our brilliant relationship with the Department of International Trade, we are also able to offer games business discounted and hassle free access to international trade events.
