Welcome to Digiscape! We are an innovative startup dedicated to bringing the excitement of esports, STEM education, and virtual reality experiences to the youth and elderly of Pembrokeshire and surrounding areas. Our mission is to inspire and engage children, teenagers, and those aged 50+, through immersive gaming parties, educational workshops, competitive esports events, and therapeutic VR sessions.

Our Vision:

Our vision is to create a vibrant and inclusive community where individuals of all ages can explore their passions for gaming and technology, develop valuable skills, and enjoy unforgettable experiences. With your support, we can turn this vision into reality and make a positive impact on the lives of local residents, both young and old.

Why We Need Your Help:

To launch Digiscape, we need to invest in essential equipment, such as gaming consoles, VR headsets, projectors, and more. Our total initial startup costs amount to £11,322.56. While we are eligible for a government startup grant that will cover 50% of these costs, we still need to raise the remaining funds to make our dream a reality.

How Your Contributions Will Be Used:

Your generous contributions will be used to:

  • Purchase gaming consoles, VR headsets, projectors, and other essential equipment.
  • Secure venues for our mobile gaming parties and educational workshops.
  • Develop and implement engaging esports tournaments, STEM programs, and VR therapy sessions.
  • Offer charitable access to our services for vulnerable children and elderly community members.
  • Cover initial operational costs, including marketing, insurance, and staffing.

Funding Goals:

Our goal is to raise £5,661, which, combined with the government startup grant, will fully cover our initial setup costs and allow us to launch Digiscape successfully.

Charitable Model:

At Digiscape, we believe in giving back to our community. We are committed to offering discounted and free access to our technology and programs for vulnerable children and the elderly. This includes:

  • Vulnerable Children: Providing free or discounted access to our gaming parties, STEM workshops, and esports events for children from low-income families or those facing other hardships.
  • Elderly Community Members (50+): Offering VR therapy sessions and gaming activities designed to improve cognitive function, reduce social isolation, and promote mental well-being among the elderly. Studies have shown that VR can have significant benefits for the elderly, including enhancing memory, reducing pain and anxiety, and providing a sense of adventure and exploration.

Benefits of VR for the Elderly:

  • Cognitive Enhancement: VR activities can help improve memory, attention, and problem-solving skills in the elderly.
  • Emotional Well-being: Engaging in VR experiences can reduce feelings of loneliness and depression, promoting mental health and emotional well-being.
  • Physical Rehabilitation: VR can assist in physical rehabilitation by providing safe, controlled environments for physical therapy exercises and movement.
