Young People’s Gambling Service

Interactive education sessions and training around gambling for young people and professionals working with young people.

Did you know that more young people gamble than drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, or take illegal drugs? The Gambling Commission revealed in November 2018 that 450,000 young people reported gambling in the past week.

We’re here to help.

Our 50-minute workshops aim to educate young people about gambling awareness and harm reduction in groups of up to 15 young people. We also offer training for professionals, which equips you with the knowledge to deliver educational group sessions on gambling to young people you work with.

Problem gambling is gambling that ‘disrupts or damages personal, family or recreational pursuits.’ Approximately 9 people in every 1000 currently have a problem with gambling; however, a further 70 people per 1000 gamble at risky levels that could become a problem in the future (Royal College of Psychiatrists).
