GamCare’s program with YGAM reaches 2 million young people

YGAM and GamCare have surpassed a milestone by reaching 2 million young people with their harm prevention initiative.

The two gambling awareness charities YGAM and GamCare have successfully coached over 24 thousand professionals, such as teachers and caretakers, who work with and influence younger people. The organizations have estimated that all of those people combined will engage with 2 million children, spreading harmful gambling awareness to a significant chunk of the United Kingdom’s under-18 population.

In addition to the experts who have pledged to educate the children, they interact with, a further 48 thousand young people have participated in gambling harm awareness events and workshops organized by the charities’ program.

From the 24 thousand professionals, a bit over 10 thousand are teachers who are going to be delivering the program’s resources via the Personal, Social, Health, and Economic (PSHE) curriculum in schools.

Furthermore, the initiative also helps parents with tailored resources and awareness classes in a bid to assist families in supporting the younger people in their lives.

This is a fantastic achievement for the program. It is highly rewarding to see this milestone, as the teams who have spent countless hours on it include people who have had previous negative experiences with gambling. Our resources are still in high demand, so we are certain that we will be able to support many more young people.

remarked the head of the national education program at YGAM, Kyle Riding.

We strongly believe that awareness and education about the risks and harms gambling can entail is an essential step in protecting people from them, and that everyone in the United Kingdom should at least get one lesson on the topic in their younger years. A crucial component of achieving our goals is to present accurate facts and help children develop their critical thinking skills.

commented the senior manager of GamCare, Alexa Roseblade.
