Games for Carers: UK games industry unites to say thank you to our NHS heroes

The UK games industry has launched a major initiative, Games for Carers, to thank our frontline NHS heroes for their inspirational work during the Covid-19 crisis. 

More than 85,000 games across a wide range of genres, age ratings and platforms have been donated by the industry for NHS workers to download for free.

NHS Staff will be able to claim their free game or subscription quickly and securely by visiting the dedicated Games For Carers at giveaways.keymailer.co/nhs and entering their NHS email address. 

The original idea for Games for Carers was conceived by games journalist Chris Scullion and has been brought to life with the help of gaming influencer marketing solution, Keymailer, and Ukie galvanising support within the industry.

Spread the word using the hashtag #GamesForCarers to ensure it reaches as many NHS heroes as possible. 

So are you an NHS worker? Make sure to grab your free game now!

Dr Jo Twist OBE, CEO of Ukie:

“The UK games industry has been proud to play its part in conveying these vital public health messages during this national emergency. Now our community has united again to say thank you to the truly extraordinary people who make up the NHS frontline team. 

“Games companies of all sizes and players everywhere recognise their exceptional dedication and hope this initiative goes some way to help them to understand how respected and valued they are,”
