GamCare publishes report on gambling harm and young users
GamCare has recently published the EGEH’s first-ever report on the efficacy of collaborating to fight gambling harms in younger users.
The report was conducted by the English Gambling Education Hub, a partnership of seven non-profit organizations funded by the UK’s largest gambling charity, GambleAware, which includes other top gambling charities like Ygam and GamCare. It followed a recent event in March, during which the EGEH was introduced, along with its mission of achieving an enhanced level of education on gambling harms among younger people in the United Kingdom.
The report covered the efficacy of the organizations’ collaboration in the EGEH’s mission and identified numerous factors that could be holding it back. Some of those barriers include a lack of awareness of the significance of gambling harms, a lack of resources dedicated to addressing those harms, and a few others.
Earlier this month, the EGEH hosted its second networking event, during which the participating organizations discussed whether traditional methods of raising awareness for gambling harms are effective and appropriate for younger generations. The organization will soon be sharing the results of this second event, along with lots of valuable insights on how local charities can enhance their positive impact.
