Pre-conference round table on education

GambleAware held a round table event on Young People and Gambling on Tuesday 4 December from 10am to 1pm at De Morgan House, Russell Square, London, WC1B 4HS.

GambleAware highlighted work carried out by the Royal Society for Public Health to better understand the views and attitudes of young people towards gambling, as well as sharing initial findings from ClearView Research’s recent work exploring how gambling is experienced by young BAME groups across Britain. We also heard from Fast Forward, a Scottish youth charity recently funded by GambleAware to deliver a Scottish Gambling Education Hub, aiming to ensure all young people in Scotland receive quality education about gambling and its related risks, and from the PSHE Association who will share their thoughts on best practice in youth education around risky behaviours, including gambling. The session was followed by Q&A and a round table discussion.
