Environmental and charitable activities
TIGA aims to minimise the impact of its activities on the environment. We also seek to adhere to all relevant environmental laws and regulations. TIGA operates a virtual business. All team members operate remotely, enabling the organisation to dispense with the need for physical premises. This enables TIGA to keep both its environmental impact and its business costs relatively low.
TIGA operates cloud computing to store and share our data between staff, replacing the need for a designated server thus reducing our carbon footprint and electricity consumption. This also serves to reduce our paper usage by maintaining a paperless workflow amongst staff.
TIGA supports SpecialEffect, a charity to help young people enjoy computer games:
SpecialEffect are helping ALL young people with disabilities to enjoy computer games - that's the thousands of people who can't use a controller due to conditions ranging from degenerative muscular diseases to injuries sustained in battle. For these people, the majority of computer games are simply too quick or too difficult to play. SpecialEffect can help them to find out which games they can play, and how to adapt those games that they can't.
And SpecialEffect do whatever it takes, because we’ve seen first-hand what a kick-start effect they can have on rehabilitation, inclusion, self-esteem and quality of life.
Find out how SpecialEffect get people playing again, and how you can be part of it. Visit SpecialEffect's website now www.specialeffect.org.uk
The Prince’s Trust
TIGA supports the charity The Prince’s Trust to help disadvantaged young people in the East of England to turn their lives around. As a not-for-profit business, TIGA is naturally delighted to be able to work with The Prince’s Trust, one of the UK’s most respected charities and one which makes a tangible difference to the lives of so many young people. TIGA is a member of the East of England Leadership Group, which is made up of businesses from across the region, and we make a financial contribution towards The Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme.
The Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme is helping disadvantaged young people to explore starting their own enterprise, and providing them with the necessary training and financial support to do so. Around 400 young people will pass through the programme this year in the region, with over 90% of these going on to self employment, employment or further training.
Jason Kingsley, TIGA Chairman and CEO and Creative Director at Rebellion, said:
"The Prince’s Trust is a superb organisation that inspires young people to strive for great heights. TIGA is determined to support The Prince’s Trust in its endeavours and we are pleased to be able to support the Development Awards. I am also personally looking forward to engaging with budding entrepreneurs about the challenges and the satisfaction that comes with running a business.”
